Inexpensive Help for Divorcees: Online Recovery Groups
Divorce brings such challenging tasks along with it. You have to surmount your fears and your self doubt. I know many divorcees who feel it was the cause of their ultimate good and finding their soul mate as it was for me. There are online recovery groups who can help you process through this challenge.
Divorce can be such an ugly thing. It shakes you from the core of who you think you are. It forces you to confront your fears and your doubts. It also brings along a new sense of self that is so much better than the old you you thought you were. It takes a lot of processing and just putting one foot in front of the other, but once you do that, wow! I know I felt so good at my accomplishments. And the reward for all that work was that I found my soul mate. My life is good.
In the early days of divorce, you are frequently operating under the burden of overwhelm. It's difficult to make decisions. It's challenging to see what options might be available. You operate from a perspective of blame, because surely it was the other one's fault and not yours?It hard to get past your own concepts of failure and frustration.
That's because you are hiding behind embarrassment, shame or guilt and you are trying to make a go of it alone. It isn't required for you to be alone. There is help via your computer.
What would we do without all the help on the internet. It's self-supporting to use the internet to help you get back to a sense of happiness again:
1. Find the sites dedicated to assisting divorcees and sign up, participate, share and learn.
2. Join an online divorce recovery group.
3. Read articles that pertain to the many challenges of divorce
You don't need to go it alone. You will discover you are not The Lone Ranger and that the other people who have similar experiences to yours can understand you and help you. They might be a few steps down the path in front of you and their advice is pertinent, practical and timely. Or you might be a few steps down the path in front of someone else and you can pause in your life, turn back and offer your wisdom to them.
Do the research to find which websites provide the best information for you. Gather all the sites you find in your research in a Bookmarks Folder so you can retrieve them easily whenever you feel the need arising again.
Find places where you can read articles about divorce.
Consider joining an online group of divorcees. At a minimum, you'll make new friends, and you'll glean many choice tidbits of how to resolve the challenging problems you are facing with help from those who are currently in or have experienced fear and self doubt via the same predicament as you. Who knows? Ultimate good could happen for you as it did for me. You could eventually find your soul mate, or create a new career in writing your advice into a book or articles as you gain strength in resolving your problems. Hang tough; help yourself.
