I was given 6 months to vacate the marital home after my divorce. The judge signed the papers the first week of December. And within a couple days, a friend of mine was murdered by her estranged husband. In addition to that, we had one of the worst winters that I can recall, losing our power, heat, and water for over a week after an ice storm, including on Christmas Day. With no family close by and very few resources to help, I had plenty to distract me from the task at hand: healing after divorce.
By May of the following year, we were moving out; ready for a fresh new start and to reclaim the healing and peace I had been searching for. It has taken me several years, and probably many more distractions, but I’ve finally come to a place of thriving after divorce.
When we seek the Healer, have faith in His healing power, and focus on the path, we will find healing. But sadly, so many of us get off course with distractions after divorce.
Don’t allow these five distractions to detour your healing after divorce.
