New Year’s Resolutions to Consider if You’re Divorcing or Newly Divorced
Your New Year’s Resolutions might look a bit different this year if you’re going through a divorce or are just coming out of a divorce. If you’re looking for some resolution ideas for the coming year, here are a few specifically geared toward people who have recently gone through a divorce.
- Forgive and forget: It can be very difficult to forgive your ex and move on with your life. But forgiveness can be a very healthy thing for you, the person doing the forgiving. It allows you to close the door on a toxic relationship and move forward into a new stage of your life. The idea of “forgetting” doesn’t mean you literally forget the relationship, but more that you do not automatically have the relationship keep entering your mind over and over again. You will be able to function day to day without having to constantly think about the things you both said and did.
- Help others: Resolving to help others is a great idea for people who are newly divorced. Finding ways to help others can lead to new friendships and new opportunities that can help you grow as a person and explore your new life.
- Be peaceful: Resolve to be peaceful by controlling your emotions and catching yourself with negative thoughts before they escalate and manifest themselves in the forms of negative actions. It’s easy to let your anger take control of you, but it’s much more rewarding to be peaceful.
- Be kind: The world can always use more kindness, and you probably can as well, having recently gone through a divorce. Find ways to commit small acts of kindness in your everyday life, and enjoy the effects they have on the world around you.
