When we’re in the thick of a divorce, it feels nearly impossible to imagine being happy again, but we can and will be able to feel genuine joy again.
Divorce doesn’t have to be something we just survive. It can be an opportunity for us to truly thrive and create a happier life for ourselves.
All of this may sound easier said than done, especially in the early stages of the process and during a global pandemic. It’s challenging to think of life after divorce when we’re dealing with so much, but there is hope and happiness on the horizon.

In this episode, award-winning divorce attorney and published author, Renee Bauer shares how to set ourselves up for a happier life, post-divorce.
3 Things You’ll Love About This Episode
How to cope with the early stages of healing
We have the power to cut back on some of the overwhelm of divorce. Stop trying to cope with everything at once and start celebrating smaller, more attainable milestones. This could be as simple as crying less in a day, or not at all.
How keeping our kids at the center helps speed up the process of moving on
It’s difficult to move forward when we’re battling for custody with our ex. By actively deciding to keep our kids’ best interests at the center of our divorce, we can avoid spending any more time in the divorce process than necessary.
How to remove some of the pressure
Not everyone will have the perfect blended family after divorce, and that’s okay. Everyone’s family is different and so are their divorces, so if we aren’t interested in or comfortable with going to gatherings with our exes, we don’t have to.
