Divorce can be an overwhelming process, and a lot of people going through divorce end up making mistakes that are easily avoidable. To avoid making mistakes that you’ll regret later, recognize that you’re in charge of the process, and you shouldn’t rely too much on your attorney. Be willing to compromise, and don’t take the process personally. Go into the divorce proceedings with an open mind and minimal expectations, and avoid jumping into a new relationship right away. Finally, don’t give up on trying to get a result that’s best for you.
- Learn from the good and bad experiences. Look for opportunities to grow.
- Do not compromise. Know what you want and do not settle for less.
- It is not all your fault. Don’t blame yourself that won’t change or fix anything.
“Too many people get hung up on their anger, resentment, and pain during the divorce process to focus on getting what they want. It’s all too easy to lash out when you, yourself, are in survival mode.”
