For most people, the Thanksgiving holiday is a time to be with family and
to give thanks. Unfortunately, for individuals moving through the
divorce process or for families that have recently grown apart, this time of year
can be an emotional and logistical challenge. Because our New Jersey family
lawyers at Moskowitz Law Group, LLC understand the holiday season can
be difficult following divorce, we have listed three tips to help recently
divorced individuals enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday.
Tip #1: Make a List of Things You Are Thankful For
It can be difficult to think about anything else during or after divorce.
For this reason, finding ways to express gratitude can help a person enjoy
this holiday. To do so, we recommend making a list of things you are thankful
for and, if possible, thank those who have provided you with support.
Tip #2: Start a New Tradition
Oftent, couples share holiday traditions. Of course, during the holidays
and after divorce, it can be easy to reflect on old traditions that you
and your ex may have shared. Instead of dwelling on the past, start new
traditions with your family and friends. This can form memories that are
more positive for years to come, and create a sense of stability for your
children who must also adapt to new circumstances. When working out these
new traditions, you can base them off custody arrangements and parenting
plans. Communicating with the other parent amicably can also make for
Tip #3: Surround Yourself with Friends and Family
Finding a support system of trusted family memories and friends can make
all the difference. Often, divorce can bring out the best and worst in
people. For this reason, it is important to surround yourself with those
who truly care for your well-being and who are willing to offer constant
support. They can help you create new memories and take the time to understand
your emotional needs during the holiday season.
