Between financial challenges, a new relationship status and a changing family dynamic, it's easy to feel like we're living someone else's life when divorcing.  At some point the surreal nature of the changes we experience hit us hard. 

Divorce can include many highs and lows that can lead to unresolved, conflicting feelings.  The on-going negativity is emotionally draining and makes navigating your new single life difficult.   It's important to remember that while you may feel some pretty abnormal feelings after divorcing you aren't abnormal. 

While nobody expects your new happy life to start right away, the truth is that the time you spend grieving, hurting, blaming and laying around is literally only hurting you.  The longer you stay "on hold" before starting over, the more time your loss is taking from you.
