What you’re going through:
All of a sudden, everything is on you. You have to manage the house, the kids, your job, your finances, your time, your daily paperwork, all by yourself.
Now you also have to find and organize every last bit of personal and financial information
going back to what seems like the year you were born so that your attorney can come up
with a Property Settlement Agreement.
You have to make tons of phone calls, send tons of emails, meet with tons of professionals, and make tons of decisions about what the rest of your life is going to look like.
Getting divorced can feel like another full time job.
What you may be thinking and feeling:
Grief, anger, resentment, depression, denial, self-doubt, blame, regret, loneliness, fear,
(insert your latest emotion here). You name it, you’re probably feeling it.
You might be physically and emotionally exhausted (does anyone sleep well when in the
process of getting divorced? Probably not.).
You may not be able to remember, focus, or concentrate on anything besides getting divorced.
I call this Brain Fog.
You might feel like a “failure” for not balancing everything successfully.
You may have questions about EVERYTHING.
