A Divorce Support Group Could Help You Recover From Post-Divorce Trauma

dupage-county-divorce-attorney.jpgResearch shows that divorce is consistently ranked as one of the most traumatizing experiences a person can go through. While not all divorces are this challenging, for some people, divorce signals an end to a major part of their life. Even when divorce is absolutely the right decision, it can come with feelings of loss, guilt, and grief that can be hard to shake, even after a long time has passed since a divorce is finalized. 

For some people, an effective way of managing the post-divorce blues is a divorce support group. A divorce support group can help you explore your challenges, identify whether certain problems are solvable, work towards acceptance and forgiveness, and create a realistic picture of what life looks like after divorce. Here are three other ways an Illinois divorce support group may be helpful to you. 

Knowledgeable Advice

Even for people who have gotten divorced before, knowing what to expect during divorce can be challenging. A divorce support group offers the chance to get advice and perspective from people who have already been through a divorce or who are currently going through one as well. You can learn from the experience of others and get realistic feedback that your friends and family, who are biased in your favor, may not be able to give. 

Sincere Sympathy

No matter how much your brother or best friend may love you, if they have not gone through a divorce themselves, it can feel impossible to explain your experience and really feel heard. Divorce groups provide connections with people going through the same situation and who can truly understand what you are going through. They know how hard divorce can be and can help you feel that you are not alone. 

Coping Mechanisms

Coping with your emotions during divorce can prove challenging, but finding a productive and healthy way to manage anger, depression, and resentment are all essential for moving on after divorce. Your children will benefit from your improved emotional health but you will benefit most of all. Learn about how people in your situation have coped with similar feelings without turning to potentially dangerous self-medication like alcohol and drugs.
