Coping With Job Loss and Divorce
If you are going through a tough time, like you lost your job and in the process of getting a divorce, always remember that you can always change your situation. Even talking with your lawyer during this process can give you ideas where to turn to next.
The fact is that our life can change in an instant. One day, it is perfectly fine and the next day, everything seems wrong. Ever heard of the saying “When it rains, it pours”? Sometimes, our life turns upside down and when this happens, we are left with no choice but to gather the pieces of our broken selves and move on. Below are some of the things that you need to remind yourself while going through a divorce:
Life Goes On
“Morning will come, it has no choice.” ― Marty Rubin
Cliché as it may sound but this is really true. Even if you have lost your job and your marriage all at the same time, it does not mean that you can no longer find happiness in other things. Take a step back and look at the bigger picture of what has happened in your life. Maybe it is about time to change your perspective and see that there are other reasons to be happy and glee.
You Have To Slow Down
“Slow down and enjoy life. It's not only the scenery you miss by going too fast
– you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.” ― Eddie Cantor
During this time, the best thing to do is not to rush. Allow yourself to enjoy the little things in life. Take some time to smell the flowers and appreciate what you currently have. It is best that you do not make any decision while you are still in the process of moving on and letting go. Do whatever makes you happy and reward yourself for having the courage for such bravery.
Acceptance Is The Key to A Happier You
“The acceptance of certain realities doesn't preclude idealism.
It can lead to certain breakthroughs.” ― Rem Koolhaas
Give yourself a chance to feel what it is like to be happy again. Accept that there are many things beyond your control. Learn to accept that you lost your job and that you are separating with your partner. It is not the end of the world. You can still find a new job that will satisfy all your needs and wants. You can also get another chance to experience a better love story. Remind yourself that you deserve to have a better life and everything will follow.
