Divorce Counseling Can Help When Love Is Not Enough

Love doesn’t always overcome. Not when your partner is on a crash course for self-destruction. Not when your relationship trains a spotlight onto the worst version of yourself. And not when deep hurt turns into incurable bitterness.

Some marriages simply die of neglect. There are times when a couple parts with very little—if any—love left.

Regardless of the cause of the split, you can expect a myriad of emotions: anger, fear, shame, sadness, loneliness, guilt, or relief.

Divorce recovery and adjustment tends to follow three distinct phases of healing: Initial Devastation; Gradual Recovery; and Ultimate Renewal.

3 Phases Of Divorce Recovery

Initial Devastation:

  • A catastrophic sense of loss akin to grief or trauma
  • Feeling as though everything in your life is in a state of flux
  • Sensations of disorientation or numbness
  • Anxiety, depression, loss of motivation, confusion, or anger
  • A sense of failure (for being unable to make the relationship work); or of worthlessness (because your partner “gave up” on you)

Gradual Recovery:

  • Nightmarish feelings of betrayal begin to subside
  • Decisions become less agonizing and fantasies about revenge seem less enticing
  • You allow yourself to grieve: panic and hysteria are reprocessed as grief and loss
  • You embark on a journey of self-exploration, accepting new possibilities into your life

Ultimate Renewal:

  • Characterized by personal and spiritual growth
  • Excitement about putting down new roots
  • Interest in dating and relationships
  • A desire to reclaim lost dreams or cultivate new ambitions

Breaking up is hard to do. Every individual will experience these stages at his or her own rate.
