Every New Year, we all make resolutions, whether it be to lose weight, to save more, work out more or somehow be a different person. Unfortunately, many of us make resolutions that are too big and too hard to keep - research shows that most of us have already abandoned our resolutions or soon will.
But it’s never too late to find your happiness. If you’re in an unhappy marriage, the new year could be the perfect time to consider divorce so you can get on with your life in 2023.
What is Unhappiness?
It's important to understand what unhappiness looks like before we get into why divorce might be the best choice for some people in 2023. Unhappiness can manifest itself in many different ways, from physical symptoms such as fatigue or headaches, to emotional signs such as irritability and depression. In addition, couples who are unhappy often have difficulty communicating and connecting with each other, leading to a lack of intimacy and connection. If this sounds like you, it might be time to consider divorce and some mental health help.
Divorce is not something that should be taken lightly; there are legal implications involved as well as emotional ones. That said, if you feel like you’re in an unhealthy situation and need to move on with your life, then taking the plunge into divorce can offer some serious benefits. For one thing, it allows both parties involved to take control of their own lives again - something that can be difficult when trapped in an unhappy relationship. Additionally, it gives people the opportunity to rediscover themselves and find new purpose and meaning in life after being confined by an unhappy marriage for so long.
