Feeling frustration after a divorce is completely natural, but there comes a point in which you need to take a step back and analyze whether or not it is at an appropriate level. If you find yourself continuously going back and forth retelling stories of despair and fury, then you’re only instigating the anger to come back more and more overtime. Try to recognize what the other party did wrong, confirm the situation to yourself, and realize that it is time to validate that you have a right to move on from it.
- If you find yourself continuously retelling the story of what made you angry, it is necessary to find ways to establish closure.
- You need to recognize that although the situation was unjust in a sense, you have the ultimate ability to confirm that fact and move on.
- Be sure to not only stop retelling the story, but also stop replaying the stories in their minds.
“We are indignant and outraged that a wrong has been done but helpless to set it right. The world doesn’t seem in balance and the continuing anger is a response to that.”
