How Do You Plan for Life After a Divorce?

How Do You Plan for Life After a Divorce?

I love it when my client’s ask me this question and allow me to be a part of this process, because I truly believe that you have an opportunity to reimagine life after a divorce. Divorce is a tragedy and it is the end of an era in your life, but it does not have to be the end of your life.

Questions for Planning Your Life After Divorce

The first step in planning for life after divorce is to determine what you want life to look like after your divorce is over and make a plan to achieve that new life. You should ask yourself the following questions and allow yourself an ample amount of time to really thing through and write down your answers:

• Where do you want to live?
• How do you want to live your life?
• What income do you need to have to live the way you want to live?
• Can you earn that income under your current circumstances?
• If not, what steps do you need to take in order to earn that income?
• What kind of boundaries do you need to put around your time and relationships in order to live a health, balanced life?
• What activities will you enjoy in your free time?
• What other toxic relationships will you need to end in order to live a healthy life?
• What friendships do I need to focus on to help me grow as a person and have a support system of other healthy people?

Share Your Answers With Someone Who Can Help

Then, you should share these answers with your attorney, counselor, or other person close to you to help you have a degree accountability to your plan. You also need to end all negative self-talk, determine the lies you have believed about yourself, and realize the truth about who you really are. None of this is easy and if you don’t have a good support system, mastermind group, or accountability group, it is easy to let these plans fall by the wayside and get bogged down in the pain and negativity of your divorce. We are here to guide you through this process and help you find a new beginning.
