How to move on from divorce

By Sharon O’Brien of Microsoft News | Slide 2 of 20

Surf the waves of sadness, don’t drown

Grief isn’t predictable. One minute you’ll feel pretty good, and the next it feels like you’re drowning in sadness. In my work with post-divorce clients, I encourage them to simply ride the waves of sadness when they come, rather than trying to avoid the feelings. Clients learn to trust their ability to be OK, and over time the waves will feel less devastating and less frequent.
