It’s Never Too Late to Find Your Happiness: Divorce in 2023

New Year, New You: Is Divorce Your Resolution to Happiness?

Every January, we promise ourselves change – a healthier body, a fatter wallet… you know the drill. But those resolutions are often too tough, and by February, most of us are back to our old ways.

What if your biggest resolution is to finally be happy? If your marriage is dragging you down, maybe 2023 should be the year you leave it behind.

“Am I Really That Unhappy?”

Here’s the thing about unhappiness: it doesn’t always look like crying in the shower. Sometimes it’s feeling tired all the time, snapping at everyone, or not being able to enjoy the things you used to. If you and your spouse can’t talk without fighting, or barely look at each other, that’s a big red flag.

Divorce: Scary But Sometimes Necessary to Achieve Happiness

Yes, divorce is a serious deal. There’s paperwork, lawyers, and tough emotions. But staying stuck in a miserable marriage can be even worse for your mental and physical health. Divorce gives you a chance to:

  • Take back control: You decide what your life looks like, not someone else.
  • Rediscover who you are: Outside of a bad relationship, you might be surprised how much you like yourself!
  • Find real happiness: It might be bumpy at first, but it’s possible!

How to Get Ready for Divorce

Divorce isn’t about running away, it’s about planning ahead:

  • Learn the basics: Websites like mine break down the divorce process clearly.
  • Get your ducks in a row: Think about money, where you’ll live– the practical stuff.
  • Find your team: A good therapist helps you sort through emotions, and an understanding lawyer helps you navigate the legal side.

You Deserve to Be Happy

If your marriage is dead weight, cutting it loose might be the bravest thing you do. It takes guts to build a new life, but YOU are worth the effort.
