Being a great mom after a heartbreaking divorce

On Behalf of | Feb 22, 2023 | Divorce

There’s no quick or easy way to recover from your divorce in Texas. Perhaps you didn’t want the divorce and hoped you and your ex would reconcile. But now you’re a single mother struggling to adjust to a new life. Plus, your ex has a new partner and you’re trying to hold it together for yourself and your children.

Maybe you’re having a tough time right now. But you can recover from the divorce and shine as a mom. Are you unsure about how to bounce back? Here are some tips to help.

Stay away from social media

Seeing photos of your ex and his new partner will make it harder to move on. Most couples love to post pics on social media, so it’s best to avoid it altogether. If you can’t completely give up social media, at least unfollow or unfriend your ex. Stop using any platform that your ex uses.

Avoid questioning your kids about the new partner

You’ll probably feel curious, or maybe even a bit jealous, about your ex’s new partner. It’s normal to want to know about anyone who has contact with your children. But avoid asking questions such as what the new person looks like or how the ex treats them.

Spend quality time with your kids

Enjoy the time you have with your kids. Focus on them instead of ruminating about what’s happening with your ex and the new partner. You’re trying to make the best of an unfortunate situation. When you’re with your kids after the split, put your efforts into being the best mother possible.

Moving on after divorce

Moving forward after a divorce is difficult when you hoped to reconcile. But your ex has moved on and you have to do the same. Focus on creating a better life for you and your children.
