9 Ways to Help You Get Through an Ugly Divorce?

9 Ways to Help You Get Through an Ugly Divorce?

Getting through an ugly divorce is quite a difficult thing, no matter what the reason might be. Your world can turn upside down after a divorce and you have to make a fresh new start in life.

Here are some tips you should follow to get through an ugly divorce:

  1. Accept the fact that it is okay to have different feelings: All feelings like sadness, anger (learn Ways to Control Your ANGER), exhaustion, frustration and confusion are quite intense after a divorce. You should accept these reactions and they will surely decrease with time.
  2. You need to give yourself a break: Accept the fact that you are weak and time is required to be back to normal functioning. Your work performance can be affected as well. Taking a break is a must after a divorce.
  3. Do not try to go through the situation alone: You should share your feelings with your friends and family, and you will surely get help. Joining support groups can also be fruitful. Isolation makes your condition worse; so you must go out, interact and share stuff.
  4. You should take proper emotional and physical care of your body: Eat timely, work out and relax. Try to maintain your normal daily routine and do not make major life decisions during this point of life. Abstain from too much alcohol and cigarettes as they are not a solution.
  5. Avoid ugly situations: Avoid talking to your former spouse as discussions may lead to ugly situations and fights, which would enhance your misery.
  6. Take a hobby: Try to do things you love to do from your heart. Join classes, take music lessons, paint pictures and slowly try to enjoy life. Making new friends is also a good idea.
  7. Think positive: Positive thinking is a must and if you engross yourself in positive, constructive activities, you are likely to feel good. You need to be flexible and in case you have children, do your best to provide them an ideal atmosphere for adjusting to the situation (learn more for Positive Parenting)
  8. Time can heal everything: Keep one thing in mind that life will eventually return to normal. Time heals everything and one day you will not be affected anymore.
  9. Talk to your children and help them cope: You need to provide proper care to your kids for coping with the situation. Talk to your children and make them understand that they are not responsible for the divorce by any means. Try to ease their concerns, be compassionate, but maintain a direct approach. Maintain your child's routine exactly how it used to be, so that they feel less amount of sudden change. Do not involve your children in the conflict in any way.

A divorce is extremely difficult to cope with, as one has never faced or felt such a situation before. With proper support and measures, you can get over a divorce much more easily.

Very nice to speak to you. I am flattered. Your habit is really marvelous. Keep going. Introspect about your memory problems. Everyone has minor memory problems because of their busy schedule or lazyness. Therefore busy people keep everything in writing. YOU CAN ALSO DO THAT. Take care.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Nervous problem or nervousness is general anxiety disorder. General anxiety disorder treatment consists of cognitive behavioral therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, you will be cured and you can stop the medicines if any. The process could take some time according to the depth of the problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

Dear, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Take care.

You have an anger-related depression and will need immediate attention from a professional. You should first meet with a counselor and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you should do so immediately. You must then work with both professionals until you get out of the depression. Since the depression is of recent origin, the prognosis will be very good if you cooperate. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

After my result of gate exam I am very sad and nothing like to me please give me some suggestions for happiness life.

BHMS, CGO
Homeopath, Pune
After my result of gate exam I am very sad and nothing like to me please give me some suggestions for happiness life.
1) Therapy: In some cases of depression, the root cause can be issues that have not been dealt with in a person’s life. The causes of depression are many because not all cases are alike. Some causes may be chemical and others emotional or it could be a combination of the two. Therapy has been known to be the most effective in dealing with depression. Lives can build up with pressures and work to the point of feeling run down and emotionally spent. People will most often seek the easiest alternative but sometimes just talking out your issues with someone trained to listen will help with depression. 2. Exercise: Exercise boosts every part of the body including blood flow to the arteries and endorphins which are naturally good for pain and even depression. Endorphins actually release other neurotransmitters in the body such as serotonin which is what antidepressants actually address. Endorphins release serotonin naturally and increase emotional health. Studies have proven that exercise improves cases of depression in patients suffering with this condition. 3. Iron: There are several studies that now indicate that a deficiency in iron is a cause of depression. There is a specific iron deficiency that is directly related to depression and some of the symptoms are lack of appetite, irritability and fatigue. There are many symptoms associated with this type of iron deficiency and it may be the underlying cause of a portion of people facing this issue. These underlying issues can lead to feelings of sadness and depression. An increase of iron in the diet can be the help needed to overcome issues of depression. 4. Fish Oil: Fish oil is known to boost many aspects of health and one of these is depression. When the body is getting all it needs nutritionally the mind follows. Fish oil contains a bevy of omega-3 fatty acids. These acids are known to improve emotional well-being naturally. You can buy fish oil that is molecularly distilled and you can ensure you are getting the purest form of fish oil available. 5. Folic Acid: Folic acid is an integral part of our dietary needs and should be considered when facing issues of depression. A deficiency of folate in the body is directly linked to depression in some cases and you can boost your happiness by adding foods rich in folate to your diet. Nutrition can play a large role in mood elevation. Folate is found naturally in foods such as grains, fruits and vegetables. Leafy greens that are rich in folate which are added to the diet have been shown to improve moods and emotional health as well as physical health. After each session you can feel the difference because you have come a little more closely to the root of your emotional issues. Boosting your happiness could just be talking out the things that cause you sadness in life. Gaining a Happy Perspective After dealing with nutritional deficiency or emotional deficiency it is important to put positive things forward in your life. Listen to positive affirmations during your day, avoid negative people and situations if you can do this. It is beneficial to emotional health to avoid drama and people who love drama. Boosting your happiness could be as simple as avoiding negative people and situations. Homeopathic medicine work for people and can be an alternative after normal remedies fail to boost happiness. However they should be a last resort not the first resort for boosting emotional health.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You are having his conflict because you are in deep love with that man. Please understand he is never suitable to you. I feel pity that you could not understand him even after 6 years of interaction. Committing suicide is never a solution. Marry another person. Live a perfect life and take revenge on this person.. Take care.
