Leaving a Toxic Relationship

Ask yourself if you are still willing to stay committed despite the fact that they are making you feel unhappy. Too much negativity is bad, so take some time for decision-making and reflection through pros and cons. 

Should I stay or should I go?

This is the first question that you need to ask yourself. How long are you willing to sacrifice your life for someone who is no longer worth it? Make an evaluation of your relationship with the other spouse and identify if there has been growth in your shared lives together. In case you notice that there are more problematic days than the happy days, then consider leaving your spouse and the toxic relationship[1]. Remind yourself that you deserve better.

How can I relieve some stress?

Whenever you feel that there are too much stressors in your life, make sure to take a break from everything. Do not spend your days worrying about things that will only bring you more reasons to be depressed or sad. Instead, spend your free time doing activities that you have never tried before. Spend more time with your friends whom you have not seen for a long time. Go to the movies with them or enjoy a special wine night with them. It is completely okay to treat yourself to some me-time!

When should I seek the assistance of a lawyer?

When your decision has become final, the next step to take is to call an effective and efficient divorce lawyer. Let him or her handle the filing of the complaint for divorce as well as the other legal matters concerning your case. Lawyers provide a way to ease the divorce process and help you maneuver through its complex legal system. By hiring a lawyer, you remove a great deal of stress that divorce provides and will give you time to focus on yourself and what makes you happy.

It is necessary that the attorney you will hire is competent enough to protect your rights and interests during divorce proceedings. Nonetheless, you also need to exert some effort in order to guarantee that you get all your claims such as alimony, child support, child custody and other related claims.
