You tried hard to keep yourself in control, but still, you ended up in tears. It seems to be the biggest fear of the world. For a while, you become unaware of everything. Your nights were sleepless. You didn't feel hungry. In short, you forget that you are surviving. You have lots of fear about your divorce. First, your mind is not able to accept the separation from your spouse.

Your heart will not accept the fact of your divorce, but your mind can. You have to stop running away from reality. As a long time, you will take to accept the reality as much depressed you will feel. And you face the truth as soon you can overcome it. It is a bitter truth, and we have to deal with it.

2. List down your inside fears which are disturbing you.

To keep yourself away from depression, you need to jot down a list of all the concerns you have after your divorce. Whatever it is, no matter how stupid it sounds. It would be best if you were honest with you. There are different fears like

  • How are you going to live alone? Or where will you go?
  • How will you spend the rest of your life?
  • How will you protect yourself and your children?
  • How you will survive without your children
  • How will you forget all the memories?
  • How will you secure your finance?
  • What my friends and family members will say how I will face them?
  • Fear to trust other

And other fears like this. After you jot down all these, list down all the solutions that come to mind under these fears.

3. Your goals reduce your doubts.

After accepting the reality, the second thing you have to do is to set your goals. Now how will you go to spend your life? Set realistic goals can be achieved. List the downtime period, too, that you think you need for achieving each goal. Make strategies for how you are going to achieve these goals.

4. Mentally relax and physically healthy.

As you are passing through the tough time of your life, you need to be mentally relaxed. Give some chill to your mind, take enough sleep, and keep yourself away from other problems. Take healthy food; be careful about your diet. And drink enough water to keep yourself refreshed. If your mind and body are healthy and relaxed, you will be able to make proper decisions.

5. Your relationship in the future.

Of course, it's your life, so you are the owner to decide for yourself. It's up to you how you are going to spend the rest of your life. Will you marry again? No need to think about this too early, take your time, it's never too late & if you believe that you will now never be able to trust others and you will not marry again. Then this will be a wrong scenario. It doesn't mean that all men/ women are the same. You have to build up your confidence, and you have to try once more. As stated earlier that the one who will understand you will do anything for you.

6. Positivity leads to a definite conclusion.
