Staying focused on the present can help during divorce

If you are going through a divorce, chances are you are feeling some amount of insecurity and fears about what the future will look like. You may also be focused on figuring out what went wrong in your marriage or what you or your ex could have done differently.

While it may be inevitable that you spend some time reflecting on the past and thinking about the future during such a difficult time, the fact is that you do not want to lose sight of the present.

Appreciating your current situation without dwelling on things you cannot change can help you get over some serious obstacles that stand between you and the next chapter of your life.

For example, rather than giving in to the anger or frustration you may have over issues that led to the divorce, you can instead channel that energy into being a good parent and making sure you are present and available for your kids.

Instead of acting out and making poor financial decisions in an effort to try and have more economic security after the divorce is finalized, you can consult financial professionals, counselors and/or your attorney to thoroughly examine your current situation and ensure all your bases are covered when it comes to taxes, child support and petitions for alimony.

Many people get overwhelmed by all the changes that have already happened and intimidated by the changes that lay ahead which can make it difficult to find any sense of direction or stability. While there is nothing wrong with thinking about the past or worrying about the future, you also need to take control of your situation today and take the steps necessary to move forward. 

Our firm can help you stay focused on what you can do today to protect yourself tomorrow. We can also help you understand if or how events or behaviors in the past could affect your divorce. For information on our firm and how to contact us, please visit our website.
