We hear a lot about how divorce is destructive to families, and how divorce can make even the strongest person question their ability to persevere, but something we don’t hear a lot about is how divorce can make you a stronger person. It might seem counterintuitive, but many people who have weathered the storm of a divorce will say that it actually changed them for the better.
Earlier this month the Huffington Post asked its readers who have been through a divorce to reflect on the positive changes they saw in themselves after divorce. Here’s a few responses from readers:
“Divorce taught me not to let fear be my chauffeur, to drive my own life”
“Not having anyone to fall back on made me learn to rely on myself”
“My divorce made me appreciate life and realize I have control over my future. I can achieve success now on my own terms.”
“Divorce taught me to be real and have a real perspective on marital issues. I’m now in my second marriage and I don’t feel like I have to prove myself.”
There are a lot of life changes after a divorce. From a change in your residence, to a change in your children’s school district, when the family dynamic is changed by a separation all family members experience strife.
