How Kindness Can Help You Through a Divorce
A little bit of kindness can make a big difference in the world, and when you’re going through a divorce it can also help you refresh your mindset and stay afloat during some significant life changes.
Here are just a few ways you may find kindness to be of great assistance during the divorce process:
- Kindness to others: You’re going to have some bad days. One of the best ways you can make it through the tough times is to lean on the others who are there for you—your friends, your family, even your pets. Your kindness to others will make sure they remain there for you. If they’re going to be there to support you, the least you can do is be kind to them in return.
- Kindness to yourself: Try to focus on doing something for yourself every day. It doesn’t have to be anything big—it could be something as simple as eating a favorite meal, or taking a relaxing bath or shower. But investing in yourself and taking time for self care during the divorce process can go a long way toward keeping you mentally and emotionally healthy through what can be a traumatic experience for some people.
- Kindness around you: Take some time each day to notice small acts of kindness that happen around you, and appreciate them when you see them. During contentious divorces in particular it can be difficult to notice these acts of kindness when they occur in the world around you, but even small actions can help refresh you and strengthen you.
- Exercising your kindness: You can train your kindness like a muscle. Work on building feelings of positivity in your everyday life, and be intentional. This can carry over into other areas of your life and help you let go from feelings of anger that are a natural part of the divorce process.
