The end of your marriage is probably the most traumatic event you’ll experience in your lifetime. Even if it’s a welcome ending, the pain and loss of the future you thought you would have can be devastating.
Healing from the shattered dreams and broken promises of a marital ending is crucial to long-term recovery. When left ungrieved, the pain and loss that comes with divorce quickly turns into bitterness, and a life long struggle with letting go of the past.
Your recovery can go one of two ways; it can be the end of a happy life, or an opening for transformation and growth. If you choose the latter we can help you untie the knots keeping you tethered to your marriage, and help you tend to your emotional and physical health as you lay the foundation for a new inner and outer life.
In our divorce recovery workshops you’ll spend time in group process, working in solitude, sharing stories, learning about the psychology of divorce, and healing wounds you thought could never heal.
This is not simply a life transition, but a trauma requiring urgent care and special attention.
Here’s the truth:
The trappings of stigma, shame, and societal expectations around divorce can become your worst enemy. The trick to getting through this life transition is doing the hard psychological work of deconstructing the fantasies and myths that will surely keep you stuck in the past.
When you become consumed and overwhelmed with “what happened” you neglect your own self-care, which can lead to all sorts of negative consequences. Not eating properly, drinking too much alcohol, not sleeping, and binging on sugar are common coping mechanisms that add to the toxicity you’re already dealing with.
You need to build your foundation for healing and growth beyond divorce.
When you give yourself the ample time for reflection and process, the end of your marriage becomes a transformative rite of passage as opposed to a dead end. Learning the skills of emotional and physical self-care through divorce is fundamental to having a full recovery.
You do not have to make a u-turn and head back to the beginning to start over. You need to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, assess your wounds, and begin the journey back to your whole self.
