Separation and divorce is a life transition that overflows with hurt, disappointment, anger, resentment, and confusion. There are challenges related to housing, parenting, and how to divide material possessions and officially end the marriage. It is painful. There is uncertainty as you make your way through life circumstances that you never expected to face. This is not the outcome you wanted when you married someone you loved. Who is this person? How did this happen? Where do I go from here? Support, encouragement and guidance are very helpful during a separation and divorce, and counseling can be a place where you find all those things. Don’t try to do it alone. It’s okay to ask for help. It may be one of the wisest things you ever do.
