Seeking Empowerment

For every minute
you remain angry,
you give up sixty seconds of
peace of mind.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson


Feeling angry is normal and appropriate when going through the emotional turmoil of divorce. Anger is a very natural part of the process of moving forward. You may experience anger directed in a variety of ways depending on the situation that led to the divorce. If used in a healthy way, the emotion can be constructive. It can help you to break the bonds of affection and attachment towards your spouse and can propel you to begin taking control of your life. Anger can also help you get through the first and most painful stage of divorce by providing an outlet for inexpressible emotions. It is advisable to let out the anger in constructive and non-aggressive ways. If misused, anger can become self-defeating and self-destructive. The emotion can also cause mistakes in judgment that work against your best interests. Your feelings of anger will come and go. The emotion will drain so much of your energy that could be used for more productive things. Anger is not a solution and does not solve anything.
