Maintaining Maturity During the Divorce Experience

[ad_1] Divorce is not something to be taken lightly. It takes a level of maturity to process the event that only someone with life experience can handle. This is why many who divorce in their 20s can sometimes struggle emotionally through this challenging time in their lives. They may not have experienced the same level of struggles throughout their young lives as someone who has lived longer, and thus have a harder time with them when they arise. In the cases that involve the divorce experience, it is a unique set of circumstances, because the maturity of one soon-to-be ex-spouse can affect...

How To Survive Wedding Season When You’re Newly Divorced · Divorced Moms

[ad_1]    Many of us who’ve divorced recall that sticky limbo period when our split was so fresh that it wasn’t even public yet. We had told only our siblings or parents, and maybe our closest friends. We hadn’t yet been out in the world as a, gulp, separated person. Two weeks after my husband moved out, and I was still emerging from the shock, I was scheduled to be at my 25thcollege reunion and shortly afterward, not one, but two family weddings. As the dates approached, I had no idea how I was going to present myself to people I hadn’t...

Understanding Compartmentalization and Divorce

[ad_1] When you marry someone, you are choosing to build a life with that person. You are choosing to participate in a married relationship with that person over the rest of the population.

They usually have to love one another and get to the point where that love becomes unconditional. The journey of getting to that point, as well as the commitment that marriage...

[ad_1]We may not have chosen the ending, but we chose the beginning. We had our reasons. Taking a look at why we made the choice that we did is not always a comfortable process.   “Why did you get divorced?” When someone asks us this, it’s actually code for, “Tell me what’s wrong with you”.  We have a track record. Someone has taken us for a test drive. There are reviews. “Loved it! It was just what I wanted.” “The parts didn’t fit together. Sent it back for a refund.” “Doesn’t work the way I needed it to. Would not recommend.” “Not worth the price.” “Run while...

Is This Really What Divorce Attorneys Think About Their Clients? · Divorced Moms

[ad_1]A bad divorce attorney writes an article about how bad she and other divorce attorneys are?

(Oh, and we also drank awesome wine and had tons of great...

[ad_1]Don’t buy into anyone else’s opinion about your body. Love yourself!   For as long as I can remember, I have been very critical of the way I look, the way my body is shaped and the weight I wish I could lose. Needless to say, after having 3 kids (a twin pregnancy in there) my body doesn’t look quite the same as it did when I was 20 years old. The shape of my body has changed and shifted, my clothes fit differently and, there’s a big part of me that still wishes I could drop those extra 10 pounds...
