As the clock struck midnight this New Year’s Eve, did you meet the new year with anticipation and excitement or with a sense of hopelessness? Is your life is in the same place as it was last year? Why haven’t you made the changes necessary to create that life you want ? Why are you paralyzed by the very thought of divorce?
Because divorce is scary. It’s a huge life choice filled with uncertainty. Often it is easier to remain with the “devil you know” than face the great unknown of a different future. You are not alone. It’s very common for people who have spent years working hard at making their marriage work to no avail to hesitate in filing for divorce, even when they know it is the right thing.
The decision to divorce should never be taken lightly. It requires careful consideration and, in my opinion, partners should try every avenue and resource available to create a satisfying marriage before considering divorce. But if you have done that and are facing a future with a spouse who cannot or will not work with you, it may be time for you to move forward.
What’s stopping you?
Maybe you are worried you won’t be able to support yourself or that you won’t have access to your children. Perhaps you are worried how expensive a divorce will be or where you will live.
