The importance of looking past your divorce


Divorce and future

For those going through a divorce, it can be hard to see into the future. It’s often much easier to focus on the present.

In the present, the process can be frustrating.  When you are going through a divorce, it can feel as if your whole life is in the balance.  This can often cause parties to focus on the here and the now versus thinking about how life will be in the future.

In focusing on the here and the now, parties can often say and do things that can lead to long-term resentment and anger.  In focusing on the here and the now, parties can often be focused on the things that led to the divorce.  This can often result in parties engaging in behavior that might feel good in the moment, but can have long-term implications on the future.

In the future, two parties to a divorce might end up attending a high school graduation together.  In the future, two parties to a divorce might end up at a wedding for one of their children.  In the future, two parties to a divorce can find themselves in a hospital delivery room waiting for the birth of a grandchild.  In the end, there will be a litany of events like this that are hard to envision when you are going through a divorce.

If you are going through a divorce, the present can often be a frustrating and difficult process.  But at the same time, it can be important to be thinking about the future.  At some point, that future is going to come and it is vital that two parties to a divorce at least have a cordial relationship as best as possible.
