Divorce can be one of the most painful and challenging times in a woman’s life. There is often a sense of shock after the decision has been made to separate. For many women, this is one of the most vulnerable times in her life. There is typically a sense of sadness that the relationship did not work out like she had hoped. For some women, there may be a sense of failure since the relationship did not work. Getting a divorce can feel like a huge loss, even under the best of circumstances. In addition to the grieving process that takes place, there is a huge transition for a woman to go from being married and in a committed relationship to being single and learning how to navigate the world on her own. The process of this transition, and even the divorce process itself, can leave a woman completely overwhelmed. In addition, there is a tremendous amount of recovering and self discovery that must take place in order to heal from the relationship that has ended. This is never an easy journey, but it can be rich in terms of the information a woman can learn about herself and the future life she wants to create for herself. Once she gets to this point, she can feel empowered, knowing that she is more in touch with herself and her life.
