Turning Your Divorce HALVES into HAVES

Divorce Detox: Divorce is all about halves, so it's not surprising that we say that people "split up," or that the word "divorce" is rooted in "divide."

With divorce, everything you thought was whole is now half. Finances, assets, kids, friends and your sense of self are just a few of the ways you can feel halved with your divorce. When you think of your divorce in terms of halves you are focusing on the glass half empty. It can feel like you have nothing, but you actually have much more. You may not "have it all" right now, but you still have plenty to be grateful for. Here are some ways to turn HALVES into HAVES:

  • You see your kids HALF the time, and you HAVE more free time.
  • You got HALF of the house, but you now HAVE less overhead.
  • You got HALF of your old friends, but now you HAVE your real friends.
  • You got HALF of the holidays with your kids, and now you HAVE freedom to travel.
As you transform your life and build a strong foundation for the future, you may realize that your HALVES help you feel whole again. What other HAVES have you transformed from your divorce?
