Building a Support Circle for Divorce


A Process You Shouldn’t Go Through Alone

A divorce can be one of the most difficult experiences a person goes through in their life. It is important to have a strong support circle to help you get through this time. Read on to learn why you should have a support circle for divorce and who you should be sure to include in your circle.

Why a Support Circle?

If you're considering divorce, it's important to build a supportive network beforehand. A divorce support circle can provide invaluable guidance and emotional stability during what is often a very difficult and confusing time.

If, for example, you are having a difficult time processing your divorce one night, you could reach out to a member of your support circle and have them act as a listening ear as you discuss how you are feeling and how to move forward. They can also be there for something as simple as a hug when you are feeling low.

Who Should You Include?

You don't have to go through your divorce alone; building a support circle can help you get through this tough time. But who should you include in your divorce support circle?

First, consider adding close friends or family members who have been supportive in the past. These are the people who will be there for you no matter what. They'll offer a shoulder to cry on and an ear to listen.

Second, you may want to add professionals to your divorce support circle. This could include your lawyer, therapist, or divorce coach. These professionals can help you navigate the legal and emotional aspects of divorce.

Finally, consider adding other people who are going through or have gone through a divorce. These people understand what you're going through and can offer helpful advice. This can include people in online support groups.
