Rosaire Nottage of Family Law Firm Nottage and Ward Discusses Ways to Bounce Back after Divorce

By Nottage and Ward on April 13, 2012

Rosaire Nottage, a founding partner of the Chicago family law firm Nottage and Ward, is committed to helping Illinois residents with a wide range of family law matters, including divorce. But it isn’t just important to offer effective legal representation to divorcing individuals, but to provide them with the support and advice they need after divorce, which is where a particular Huffington Post article comes in.

Being happy again after divorce is, unfortunately, not an instantaneous process, even if you wanted the divorce and looked forward to when you would be single and on your own again. Divorce is a big change, especially if you were married for many years, and being single takes some getting used to, but there are ways to make sure that you can encourage the process along more quickly:

Allow yourself time to heal while developing a new “normal.” It is completely natural to experience a not-so-happy transition period after divorce, but what you do during that time can either prolong or shorten it. Rediscover yourself, create new routines, and establish what you want to do with your life now (and start doing it).

Try new things. There is great emotional value in doing something new, whether it is making a new friend, eating at a different restaurant, learning a new language, going back to school, or developing a new exercise routine. Anything new that you experience that gives you a new direction or better focus in your new life will help you feel better.

Finally, stop perseverating on the past. Your old story is just that, old. It may have influenced the person you would like to become, but holding onto the past and retelling that tale will only hold you back from your new goals. Focus on the present and future.

Finding the strength to revitalize your life after divorce may be difficult but it is never impossible. Divorce is sometimes the best choice for unhappy marriages. If you’ve decided that divorce is the best option for your marriage, Rosaire Nottage and the dedicated Chicago divorce lawyers at Nottage and Ward can help you take the necessary steps to a better life.
