Dating someone going through messy divorce
When you’re going through a messy divorce after 50, it can be easy to say, “You know what?!?!
I’m just going to let my lawyer figure it out for me.” Or, “Okay, fine.
We stumble into divorce and panic, instead of logically asking ourselves, “What’s the game plan?
Where do I want to be in a year with this divorce and how can I get there?
If agreeing to the demands of my spouse will get them off my back and let me move on, whatever.” Or, you may seek advice people whose information may not necessarily be in best interest.
Why be bitter during this next chapter of your life?” It’s no wonder why you feel like we no longer control our own life.Planning where you want to be six months or a year from now and then implementing those steps has bigger dividends than struggling to make it through the day.We over-react because we think we will “win,” the divorce, and “get back at” our spouse.This tit-for-tat only prolongs stress and ensures a future of bitterness.
