Dealing with divorce and realizing a need for it

Divorce often brings many personal fears to the surface. The anxieties associated with the split have caused people to doubt many things: themselves, their former partners, their emotional security and their financial security, to name a few things. Many in Ohio have found that these feelings of inadequacy and insecurity pervade throughout the divorce, often extending into the subsequent months or years following the split. This causes many to wonder if they are able to move on, to become happy again.

No matter how contentious the divorce is, these sorts of feelings often arise. This is likely because of the sudden change in a spouse's life. In most cases, the divorce cuts out a person that has been a major part of your life for a number of years. This creates a void that many do not know what to do with. Some people deal with serious amounts of depression and anxiety for a period of time following the dissolution of the marriage. The good news is that many people escape this depression and find that they are much happier without the marriage.

This often happens to spouses that agree on the need for a divorce. Though the split is amicable, the likelihood for a period of mourning is still there. This may be accompanied by feelings of confusion and resentment, despite the agreement on the divorce. Later, individuals who come to terms with the divorce usually realize that the marriage needed to end if both spouses were ever going to be happy again. 

There are many ways to cope with a split. Some write about it and share their story with friends and family. Others spend years talking it out with counselors and therapists. Though sadness over the loss of your spouse may be present, it is possible that you were more sad during the marriage than you will ever be in divorce.
