The separation of a union of love can be one of the hardest times in our lives. When all is said and done, divorce is a stressful business and it can have a huge impact on every aspect of our lives.
But it is important to remember that divorce is never the end of the world and there are plenty of people who still support you and those who will form a network around you in your time of need. Of course, no matter how many people are surrounding you during a time like this it is easy to feel alone. Loneliness is understandable in a time such as this, and it might be hard to get away from these feelings as you go through the proceedings.
This is why today I wanted to share some quotes that might break you out of your loneliness and help you feel some support from others who have been in the same position.
“There is no such thing as a “broken family.” Family is family, and is not determined by marriage certificates, Divorce papers, and adoption documents. Families are made in the heart. The only time family becomes null is when those ties in the heart are cut. If you cut those ties, those people are not your family. If you make those ties, those people are your family. And if you hate those ties, those people will still be your family because whatever you hate will always be with you.”
“When two people decide to get a divorce, it isn’t a sign that they ‘don’t understand’ one another, but a sign that they have, at least, begun to.”
“Divorce isn’t such a tragedy. A tragedy’s staying in an unhappy marriage, teaching your children the wrong things about love. Nobody ever died of divorce.”
“I was a high-functioning depressive, seemingly pulled together and buttoned-down. But inside deep, I was numb and mute. Now on the other side of divorce, I know that was me fragmented and doing my best to cope. But my body knew.”
“It always gets worse before it can get better. But it will get better. Like everything else, and like our past struggles, at some point, we win, but before that win, there’s always that loss that spurs us on.”
“When people divorce, it’s always such a tragedy. At the same time, if people stay together it can be even worse.”
“Don’t be afraid. Be focused. Be determined. Be hopeful. Be empowered.”
“Perhaps sometimes reminding ourselves that we do have a choice makes it easier to pick the harder one.”
“Don’t have regrets. You can learn something from every experience.”
“Imagine spreading everything you care about on a blanket and then tossing the whole thing up in the air. The process of divorce is about loading that blanket, throwing it up, watching it all spin, and worrying what stuff will break when it lands.”
“I have not ceased being fearful, but I have ceased to let fear control me.”
“I think that men were allowed to write about their marriages falling apart, but you weren’t quite supposed to if you were a woman. You were just supposed to curl up into a ball and move to Connecticut. But you know, it didn’t really matter because, as I said, I knew what the book was. It’s a funny book, and I was very happy that it sold a lot of copies.”
