We know that it’s never easy to go through a divorce of any kind, but some become more contentious than others. It’s easy to get stressed in a high-conflict divorce, but the steps you take to manage your stress can help. Whether you’re focused on the solutions, avoid engaging your ex, or need help from others, here’s what you can do to manage your stress.
Keep Your Final Resolution In Mind
Divorce can be emotionally-charged. The final divorce agreement may seem far into the distance, and the time in between can be challenging to endure. But if you keep your focus on what’s to come and the final resolution rather than your arguments over custody, support, alimony, and property division.
There’s always a light at the end of the tunnel.
Don’t Argue and Find Ways to Avoid Conflict
Contention can make anyone say hurtful things or feel like they need to take shots or insults at one another. However, the more you argue, the more you’ll hear back from your ex, and it could bring out emotions of stress, anger, and frustration. There’s a saying: If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. It’s wise to keep this in mind in a divorce, and remain respectful as it could impact your case.
Have a Support System Around You
Venting about your situation can help you feel significantly better about your stress, but you don’t want to vent to just anyone. Keep a support system of friends, family, therapists, or any other person who will be on your side during this difficult time. Choose people who will be honest and transparent with you while also giving you the guidance and positivity you need.
