What are your thoughts on how to restart life after divorce?
Here is a shout out to all of you parents who are already divorced. What tips or tricks or advice or suggestions would you offer a parent whose contemplating divorce or newly separated? And I know this is a loaded question because I’ve got a whole list of things that I would suggest to someone. But my point here is, that we all learned many lessons throughout our divorce… many things that we wish we would have done differently. Many things that we wish we would have done in a smart way, more cost efficient way. What would be your top pointer for someone who is thinking about going through divorce or someone who already started to go through it and is maybe feeling lost and confused? What words of wisdom would you share with them? Please post them below in the comments and the reason that I want to do this is because I want people- parents- who are in that stage of making the decision: “Should I stay or should I go?” or in the stage of making decisions on what to do with the kids and finances and this and that… I want them to learn from those of us who have experience.
Why? Because that is the power of community. And, that is the key ingredient we need in order to downtrend the nasty divorce epidemic.
How to prepare for divorce as a man and as a woman:
That is what learning is all about. All of us who have been already divorced know and have been through the exact same stories and sagas. It is a repetition of common stories and actions taken. We all go through the same thing over and over again with slight tweaks to the story here and there. But there are a lot of lessons to be learned and there is a lot of great knowledge and wisdom to be shared. So, I would love if you will all, if you feel comfortable, come out and share your tips. And, if you don’t feel comfortable coming out and sharing it publicly, but you would love to share your story and you would love to share your knowledge and you would love to just voice your opinion or voice your thoughts, have someone hear what you have to say, please join us anonymously at Divorce by Rose.
