Building a Support Circle for Divorce

Having Close People Throughout the Process

When going through a divorce, it is vital to have a support circle. This support circle can give you the emotional support you need during this difficult time. It can be hard to deal with all the changes that come with divorce, and having a support system can make things much more manageable. In this blog, learn why building a support circle for divorce is essential.

Who Should You Include

Your support system should ideally be made up of people who have been through a divorce themselves or who are otherwise unbiased and non-judgmental. These people will understand what you are going through and can offer helpful advice and support. If you do not have anyone in your life that fits this description, consider joining a support group for people going through a divorce. Here, you will be able to meet others in similar situations and form lasting relationships.

No matter who you choose to include in your support system, it is important that they are people you can trust and who make you feel comfortable. You should never feel like you have to hold back or censor yourself when talking to these people.

What Should You Talk About

When confiding in your support system, there are no limits as to what you can talk about. This is a judgment-free zone where you can discuss anything and everything related to your divorce. From the big things like child custody and asset division to the smaller details like how you are coping with the change, no topic is off-limits.

Just remember, this is not a space for venting all of your anger and frustration. While it is perfectly normal (and healthy) to feel these things, your support system should be a positive influence in your life. These people should make you feel better, not worse.

Reaching Out for Help

If you are currently going through a divorce and do not have a support system in place, it is never too late to reach out for help. Whether you join a support group or simply confide in a trusted friend or family member, building a support circle can make all the difference during such a difficult time.
