1. Break Up with Self Limiting Beliefs
Part of the process of healing as you go through your divorce is evaluating the self-limiting beliefs that are holding you back. During this time in your life, the mental narrative going through your head is more important than ever. Do you best to keep it positive. To help overcome negative internal echoes, write down the underlying beliefs you have about yourself and the world around you that you’ve come to perceive as your current reality. Challenge your thinking and think of specific positive characteristics of yourself or possible outcomes of a situation. Replacing negative self talk with positive thoughts. Doing this will help you become aware of and change your self defeating behaviors, which is the first step in “breaking-up” with your negative beliefs.
2. Secure Your Financial Future
Although your finances may be the last thing you’re thinking of as you navigate the emotional turmoil of divorce, they are one of the most important things to think about. As a single person, you’ll need your bank accounts and credit cards in your name. Work on establishing credit for yourself as soon as possible. Ensuring your finances are ready to transition with you is an important step on your journey.
3. Seek Counseling and Support
During this difficult time in your life, having a solid support system is crucial. Don’t be afraid to lean on close friends and family and share your struggles with them.
