Take control of your emotions and actions during divorce

On Behalf of | Apr 21, 2021 | Divorce

Many New Jersey residents facing divorce may think they have an idea about how they want to handle the process. Some may imagine worst-case scenarios, and others may think that the proceedings will not be that bad. What happens in your case will differ from any other case, and if you want a particular outcome, you will likely need to work for it.

While much of your divorce case will be out of your hands as far as timing and paperwork, it does not mean that you have no say in what happens or how you handle the proceedings. This time may difficult and emotional, but with the right help, you may find yourself dealing with the situation better than expected.

Address your emotions wisely

While it is important to allow yourself to feel the emotions that come up during your divorce, you may want to take a smart approach to how you handle those feelings and with whom you share them. For example, trying to use your anger or resentment when you make important divorce decisions because you want to get back at your soon-to-be ex could only make the process more difficult for everyone, including yourself.

Talking about your feelings openly may help you avoid using them for revenge, but you may want to avoid hashing out your feelings with your attorney. While you may trust your legal counsel to help you get the best results, their job is not to act as a therapist. If you find yourself struggling with your divorce-related feelings, seeking help from a counselor, therapist or other mental health professional may be beneficial.

Monitor your technology use

Additionally, you may find yourself wanting to rant about your case to friends and family or even post lengthy tirades on social media as a way to vent your feelings. However, it is important to keep in mind that your messages and social media activity could play a part in your case if the situation becomes contentious. Your venting session could become evidence that your ex uses to prevent you from getting something you want from the case, especially if there is a paper trail like texts, emails or posts.

A lot goes into ending a marriage, and it pays to remain conscious of your actions and decisions during this time. If you cannot decide whether a certain social media post could put you in a bad light later or whether another divorce-related decision may not be in your best interests, gaining reliable advice before you take action may be wise.
