Divorce is different than death, but it is loss none the less. The main difference is that in death, you won’t see the person again, they are gone from this earth. In divorce, you are apart, but you may see the other party again, maybe quiet often. It could be like poking a stick in a wound. It just never heals. Because of this open wound, divorce can be worse in some ways than the loss of a loved one.
Even though my son has been divorced for a couple of years, I happened to run into his ex last week. It was a little awkward, even though I have no hard feeling toward her nor do I blame her completely for the divorce. I can imagine it would be very different if my son had seen her. He may have felt grief from seeing her.
If you have been married to someone for even a short period of time, after a divorce you will feel grief from the loss. You will have many of the same emotional pains as any other griever.
You may feel guilt, loneliness, heartache, physical pain, depression plus many other emotional feelings.
The way to get over (or through) grief from divorce is the same as for death or any other loss. You must work through the emotional pain and get your life back. I use Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) to take care of these problems. EFT will help you get past the emotional pains of grief.
Please keep watching this website as I will be posting a video to teach you the techniques for doing EFT to overcome your grief pain.
