How to be Grateful Despite Going Through a Divorce

Going through a divorce can be a whirlwind of emotions and tumultuous rollercoaster of back and forth sparring between the spouses to come to an agreement.

It’s important for you to acknowledge and process the emotional challenges of experiencing your divorce process; however, it is even more important to find out what you are grateful for during this challenging time in your life too, as it will help heal the scars divorce leaves on all involved. Studies have shown that gratitude can shift your focus, improves the quality of your life, makes you feel happier and reduces your innermost fears.

Here are a few ways we help our clients to see the gratefulness in a difficult situation:

  • Focus on what you have, not what is being taken away or changing
  • While your divorce is stressful, think about others who are going thru this process too, as their situation may be worse
  • Practice small acts of kindness daily
    • Smile to strangers
    • Hold the door for someone
    • Use “please” and “thank you”
  • Even on the rough days, write down 3 things you are grateful for no matter how big or small they are
