The other day I happened to stumble upon another article written with the list of negative effects or consequences of divorce, especially when there are children involved. It was basically a list of reasons why you should never get a divorce. As I write and share my story, about how God didn’t save my marriage from divorce, I often hear what I should have done differently or the consequences I now must endure.
As people who are going through or who have gone through a divorce, we already know these consequences. We’re experiencing them first hand. We know the trauma our family faces, we feel the betrayal, we grieve the losses, and we see the pain our children are enduring after divorce. This is not the path that we would have wanted to be on but so many of us were not given any other choice – we were abandoned and/or abuse or adultery was committed.
The only way to heal and move on to a thriving life after divorce is to accept this path, even if it’s really unwanted. We remain stuck in these negative effects when we refuse to acknowledge the truth and allow this human rejection to define our worth. Instead of dwelling on what could have and should have been, we need to learn to see the light at the end of the dark tunnel and overcome. Thriving after divorce means creating a new life, with our Creator as our Husband. Here are 5 positive things to do after divorce.
