Handling the Holidays After a Divorce


Keep Moving Forward

The holidays are a difficult time for anyone going through a divorce. You may be feeling many emotions, including sadness, anger, loneliness, and confusion. It can be tough to handle the holidays alone. Here are some tips to help you get through this difficult time.

Focus on Your Loved Ones

The holiday season is a time when it can be difficult to manage your emotions, but it can be especially hard after a divorce. If you're feeling down this holiday season, try to focus on your loved ones. Spend time with your children, if you have them, or call up your parents or siblings. Talking to and being around people who care about you can help boost your mood and make the holidays feel a little bit brighter.

Give Back to Others

Another way to focus on your loved ones is to give back. Volunteer at a soup kitchen or visit an elderly neighbor who may be alone during the holidays. Giving back will not only make you feel good, but it will also help you remember what the holidays are really about: spending time with those we love.

Take Some Time for Yourself

Finally, don't forget that it's perfectly okay to take time for yourself as needed. The holidays can be overwhelming, and it's important to give yourself a break. Whether that means taking a long bath, going for a walk in the park, or just sitting down with a good book, make sure to schedule some "me" time into your holiday season. You deserve it!
