But we must realize that we can
Many people carry a sense of personal failure when getting divorced and
internalize a sense of shame or inadequacy that is inappropriate and
unhelpful. Feeling guilt, shame, or regret are common emotions experienced
at the end of a marriage. If you are like most people, you took your
marriage vows seriously. You believed you would be married forever. As
time passed, things changed. Allowing feelings of guilt, shame, or
regret to rent space in your brain decreases your self worth and energy.
These feelings have the tendency to entrap you, which limit your ability
to function in a healthy way and keep you from moving forward. Guilt is
not the truth. It is just a feeling. Getting divorced is not necessarily
bad, good, right, or wrong. The process is whatever you make it. You are
much more than your divorce.
