Because divorce is one of life’s most difficult transitions, the stress
and emotional upheaval it engenders can be tremendous. It is not unusual for
someone going through divorce to experience an entire gamut of emotions - anger,
rage, guilt, fear, panic, insecurity, self-doubt, depression, loneliness, confusion
to name a few. Allowing these emotions to take control can be immobilizing,
preventing you from rehabilitating yourself and successfully getting on with
your life. Perhaps more importantly, they can adversely affect other innocent
victims, namely your children.
Divorce Interactive can be a valuable emotional resource during your divorce.
In our Professional & Resource Directory you will find a large number of
marriage and family counselors and therapists in your area. Because interactivity
is so important to us, we have put together a number of discussion forums and
chats on various divorce-related topics, where you can benefit from the experiences
and thoughts of your peers, as well as insights from our professional members.
We have also put together a calendar of events which will include social activities,
courses, group meetings and other events, and the largest listing of divorce
support groups available on the web. Support groups and the camaraderie of people
with similar problems may help you gain perspective, realize that you are not
alone and come to terms with your negative emotions. Many groups are sponsored
by churches or temples, but most are non-denominational and open to everyone.
“Each of us has the right and responsibility to assess the roads
that lie ahead, and those over which we have traveled, and if the future road
looms ominous or unpromising, and the roads back uninviting, then we need to
gather our resolve and, carrying only the necessary baggage, step off the road
into another direction.” --Maya Angelou--
