H-Factor Where Is Your Heart

Happiness and Divorce by Lisa Cypers Kamen and What is Your Happiness

By Lisa Cypers Kamen, Harvesting Happiness

Recently I was talking to a group of people who were going through divorce and I was struck by how some were utterly devastated while others seemed to make better progress at navigating the emotions, trials and tribulations of a dissolution.  When I spoke to the ones who seemed to be managing the process better than others, I asked them what was the secret.  What I found was that deciding how you were going to show up every day through the process was as important if not more important than the process itself.

“I made the decision every day to put the divorce in perspective,” said one woman.  “I knew that this was just one part of the fabric of the quilt that comprises my life and I needed to remind myself that every day when I woke up.  As a result, I keep the divorce in perspective and I am happier than most even thought I did not want the divorce.”

Choosing to keep a divorce in perspective can vastly increase your happiness during the difficult times…  It’s helpful to remember at this time that this too shall pass.  What struck me as most impressive are the men and women who weathered divorces for a variety of reasons chose to see the divorce as part of their life, not their whole life.  The power of choice of how they thought about the divorce gave them the courage to move forward to their next life adventure.
