5 Reasons People Report Being Happier After Divorce

| |

It’s no secret that making the decision to divorce will alter your entire life: emotionally, physically, mentally, and financially.

Your living situation will change. How you spend your time will change. Your finances will change. If you have kids, their lives will change, too. But what you make of the time after the divorce concludes – whether life gets better or worse – is up to you.

Despite divorce being a difficult and emotionally draining experience, many of our clients have told us that their lives have drastically improved their lives post-divorce and report feeling happier once the process is complete. Plus, with the help of a divorce attorney, the outcome can bring a sense of relief and positivity.

The most common reasons people report feeling happier after divorce include:

1. Being Free From Unhealthy Relationships:

Many people who divorce report feeling relieved that they are no longer in an unhealthy or toxic relationship. Without the stress of constant conflict, many people experience a newfound sense of freedom and happiness.

Clients have reported less tension in their life. Arguments and fights between a couple often build to unhealthy tension for everyone involved. If you’re a parent, that tension can greatly affect your children and stick with them for a long time. When you’re more clear-headed, you can prioritize your family’s needs and finally release the emotional strain.

2. Having More Time To Focus On Themselves:

Divorce can offer a chance to focus on your own mental, emotional, and physical well-being. With more time to pursue interests and hobbies, you may find yourself feeling more fulfilled and content.
Clients have reported that they have reinvented themselves, getting into a personal rut is easy to do when you’re in an unhappy marriage. However, moving on after a divorce allows an individual to be just that again – an individual. Finding new hobbies, discovering new talents, and/or taking on a new personal style can be the breath of fresh air to get past that rut.

An unhappy marriage – and then the process of dissolving it – is time consuming and exhausting. Once it’s over, many of our clients are surprised to find they have more free time to focus on the things that matter.

3. Finding A Renewed Sense Of Purpose:

Divorce can be a fresh start, allowing you to rediscover forgotten or neglected dreams and ambitions. Without the stress of a marriage, you may find yourself in a better position to pursue the things that make you happiest.

We hear this one over and over. It’s easy to forget about the things you used to love when you’re spending so much time dealing with personal difficulties. Many of our clients have found that post-divorce, they finally have the ability to go back to their roots and rediscover the pastimes that made them who they are.

4. Improved Financial Stability:

With the help of a skilled divorce attorney, you can ensure that your financial future is secure. This can provide a sense of security and peace of mind that can lead to better overall happiness.

5. Increased Support From Others:

After a divorce, many people find increased support from family, friends, and even strangers. This feeling of being surrounded by understanding, caring individuals can provide much-needed stability and happiness.
