The Emotional Impact of Divorce During COVID-19
Category: Personal Development Written by Sophia Smith
As if being stuck in the middle of a worldwide pandemic and a devastating global recession wasn’t enough. Divorce is, at best of times, still a fairly terrible thing to go through. The fact that it’s happening right now? That’s a particularly painful blow.
But listen, even though the universe looks like it’s currently conspiring against you, you’re not defenseless. You’re going to come out on top. If you learn how to tap into your inner strength this event won’t define the rest of your life and it won’t break you. Don’t worry – we’re here to prove kind support and offer advice that will allow you to recover your spiritual energy and get back to your old self.
Know that you’re not the only one
The pandemic has put a strain on a lot of marriages this year. Take a look at Australia, for example – the tensions between couples are higher than ever, and more and more couples are seeking marriage counseling or divorce because of strained relations. So it’s not just you, you’re not the only person who’s facing this right now, and you’re definitely not alone.
Your confidence and faith might be shaken right now, but take comfort in knowing that what’s happening is normal.
Find support immediately
Since most of us are fairly isolated right now, it’s important to reach out and get some outside support. While friends and family can definitely help you here, it could also be a good idea to talk to your spiritual advisor and anyone who can help you nurture your faith. Right now, having faith is going to be more important than ever because it will give you the strength you need to keep going and find some joy despite the hardship in your life.
Find a good lawyer
Good legal help is necessary even if your divorce is amicable. Let’s take a look at Australia again – since divorce rates are so high at the moment, having a family lawyer during divorce proceedings is something entirely normal and common because a lawyer can protect your interests. If you’re an Aussie, you can find good family lawyers in North Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, or any other part of the country.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re from Canada, Europe, or the States – legal support will prevent a lot of problems. If you are covered legally, you can focus on recovering emotionally.
Recover your calm through meditation
Now is the time to find your inner calm again, and there’s no better way to do that than meditation. Meditation exercises can soothe you and help you let go of anger, pain, and misery. They can help you remember your beautiful self and charge you up with energy that you need to get better.
We recommend 30-minute daily meditation sessions of simple, quiet mindfulness. If this is too long, shorter sessions can also help. Try to meditate regularly so you’d practice positivity and keep remembering your own strength every single day.
Invigorate your body through yoga
Yoga is the perfect way to take care of your body during the COVID-19 pandemic. Most of us aren’t moving enough right now, and steady, core-strengthening exercises such as yoga can allow us to maintain our health, our beautiful physique, and our confidence.
You may not think of it that way now, but a divorce could be a good opportunity to focus more on yourself and take care of your own needs. Daily yoga, coupled with mindfulness and meditation, can rejuvenate your fallen spirit.
Truly let go of your ex
If your decision to get a divorce is final, then it’s time to let go of your soon-to-be-ex partner for good. Dwelling on the past, holding onto resentment, and trying to find excuses to keep seeing them isn’t going to help you heal. Now is the time to take a deep breath and let them go with a long exhale.
Give yourself time and space to do this, and try to focus on the good future that lies ahead.
Protect your children
If you have children, bear in mind that they’re sensitive, hurt, and confused right now. You must be there for them and help them cope, and one big part of this is staying civil with your ex. Try not to have any shouting matched in front of the children, and don’t be snide or condescending. The kids don’t know what’s happening, and seeing their parents argue this way could potentially damage them forever.
Keep your faith strong. This troubled period will pass, and if you take good care of yourself and remain strong, you’ll manage to heal with time.
