Are You Struggling to Come to Terms with Becoming ‘Suddenly Single’?
Are you transfixed with fear, overwhelmed with anxiety and coping with high levels of stress over telling the kids, selling the house, sorting your finances & finding a lawyer?
Divorce (or separation) is messy, stressful, overwhelming and exhausting because there are so many important decisions you have to make that will impact on your short-term, medium-term and long-term stability and sense of security, to say nothing of the emotional roller coaster of emotions you are also going through.
This is a life-changing experience and it’s not always easy, simple, straightforward or quick.
Keeping a Journal has many positive benefits
Keeping a Journal helps you figure out who you are, what you need and what you want.
It can help you to make better decisions and focus on the very things that support you in taking compassionate care of yourself and others.
Journaling can help with personal growth and development because by regularly recording your thoughts you will gain insight into your behaviours and moods.
Journaling can be used for problem-solving and stress reduction and it’s been proven to improve mental and physical health.
It also can lead to increased self-esteem.
Journaling is like talking to someone, but that someone is actually yourself and it’s where you gain clarity, direction and more confidence. It can become a place to dump your emotions until you start to feel better, make sense of what’s happening to you and to begin to help you to see the wood for the trees and eventually, little jewels of wisdom and direction emerge.
Writing in a Journal is an effective tool to use in your healing process.
