Change Your Life for the Better with Divorce


Have you been muddling through an unhappy marriage for far too long? Has it taken a toll on your relationships both in your family and in other places?  Maybe your melancholy has made you a little bit short-tempered.  Perhaps you’ve lost focus at work.  You’ve put on a few pounds, and you really feel as though you’re sleepwalking through life.  Is it possible you drag yourself around with a cloud over your head, no self-confidence, and no control over the direction of your life?  Maybe it’s time to change all of that.

A Divorce Can Change Everything 

Have you considered starting over?  If your marriage is that miserable, it might make sense for everyone involved:

  • You have no passion, no dreams. Being married has taken the life out of you. It’s no one’s fault. The marriage wasn’t working for myriad reasons. It may have been impacted by your age, religion, money, stress… the possibilities are endless. What’s clear is that you haven’t been happy for a long time, and neither has your spouse. Imagine the possibilities if you’re both given a second chance!  You’ll be able to look at the world with fresh eyes.
  • It could improve the relationship you have with your spouse. When you don’t have to count on one another for every little thing, you may be able to see one another as people, not just as a spouse who’s failing at making you happy. Stranger things have happened.
  • You will have the chance to develop a better relationship with your kids. When no longer feeling suffocated in an unhappy marriage, you can bring new energy and positivity to parenting.
  • You’ll have control over your time, your space, and your life. Sure, you’ll have expectations like working and parenting, but your life will be yours again.  You pick the ways you spend your time, the food you eat, the friends you see. Being empowered to build your own life will be like a breath of fresh air.
  • Your health could see a huge benefit, believe it or not. There’s a lot of research tying stress to both mental and physical duress. Being single could lift you out of that misery, lower your blood pressure, and give you the confidence to get fit.
  • There are some financial benefits to divorce, as well. One of them is the ability to withdraw money from a retirement account without facing any penalties. Another is the possibility of qualifying for financial aid for your kids to get a post-secondary education.
  • Real happiness could be just around the corner. That might be in the form of travel, work, creativity, or even real love.  Are you willing to bypass all those possibilities just to hang out in a loveless and miserable marriage?
