Two –  I am blessed to have great friends and amazing family.

While your friends and family may not understand why you are going through a divorce, they still should be your support system. Remember to be grateful for them.

Self-confidence is one of the most important parts of rebuilding during and after a divorce. Even during a divorce, you should remind yourself that you are the only one that can hurt you.

Five – I woke up with a clear mind and powerful heart.

Staying calm and building self-confidence is important when you are dealing with the divorce. Allowing comments get to you in not going to help in the long run. This reminds you that you need to stay calm.

Six – A new stage of my life is starting.

Many people see divorce as an end. However being positive, divorce is a new stage that you are able to create.

    I know this will sound out there, but for many who go through a divorce, it is the company that is the hardest to move on from. You get used to the person being there for you or just being there (physically) in general. It is adult human nature to pull away from change but we need to tap into our inner child when change comes. Children embrace it as a new adventure! Divorce isn't death and whatever brings you to that point, you have to look at it this way... The people who don't divorce are TRULY bonded to one another. Would you be happy being in a relationship where you don't have a bond, for the rest of your life?

      How very true. I also think it's an odd transition in many circumstances when we "divorce" the in-laws. I have been sent many emails regarding the loss of communication after decades love and care with our "other" parents.
