3 Tips to Cope with Divorce During ThanksgivingBy Moskowitz Law Group, LLC |
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 easier holidays.
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.
