MDP urges those in survival mode to set goals that reflect constructive activities.
(PRWEB) April 23, 2014
Online divorce service MyDivorcePapers.com (MDP) helps many divorced couples get out of their marriages quickly and affordably, but the company acknowledges that the aftereffects can go well beyond the hour of time it takes to walk through a form completion process. That's why they've put together a new tip sheet on how the newly divorced can get out of "survival mode" and move on with life following the split. Here's what they recommend:
Firstly, Know The Signs Of Survival Mode.
Fresh off the divorce papers, many couples fool themselves into thinking that they've overcome the obstacle. They're not ready, the company states, for the recovery period ahead, and so they put up defenses to avoid confronting the emotional issues that are still bubbling under the surface. Knowing the signs of survival mode is a big step in getting past it, the company claims.
“If you've ever said the words, 'I don't have time,' 'I'll have to reschedule,' or 'I feel numb,' then you're in survival mode,” a company representative explained. "It can affect your personal life, your business, and even day-to-day tasks like cleaning your apartment or doing the laundry. And worst of all, you usually put these things off by doing unnecessary or destructive things that make the situation worse."
Secondly, Focus On Goals.
MDP urges those in survival mode to set goals that reflect constructive activities. "Have fun with life," the rep said. "Take a creative writing class, lose weight, start your own business -- focus on things you can accomplish, not on things that simply delay making improvements in your life."
Thirdly, Celebrate Milestones.
Once a couple decides to file for divorce, they often forget to celebrate milestones, instead focusing on things that "have to be done" instead of things they wish to do. As a MDP representative points out, "You deserve time to celebrate life and the fact that you are a survivor. It may seem silly to grab a few drinks with the girls or buy that new boat, but these things are ways of patting yourself on the back and saying, 'You did well, now keep going, you're headed in the right direction!' Give yourself permission to feel good about the work you've put in. Once you've gotten there, go out and reach more of your goals."
