Going through a relationship breakdown can be one of the toughest experiences in life. It can knock our confidence, make us question our judgement and in some cases even our sanity.
If the relationship has been longer term it’s likely that on top of the emotional entanglement that there will also be some financial involvement to untangle. In a lot of cases and taking precedence over all else there may be kids to consider. It can all be incredibly complex and overwhelming.
If you’re lucky you will have some supportive family and friends to step in and help you work your way through the minefield of legality, upset, uncertainty and grief for that dreamed of shared future that’s no longer going to happen. However, sometimes even well-meaning people can bring their own bias, and ill-informed advice and this can add to the pressure and confusion.
Here are some tips to help in the initial stages:
This tough time won't last forever. The feelings begin to subside and life takes on a new form of normal. As the saying goes "This too shall pass". When the dust settles it can be an opportunity to reassess and make decisions about the direction you want to take in life. For a lot of people it's a chance to flourish in their own right, often the people that are most devastated go on to live lives far more fulfilling than the one they were experiencing during the former relationship.
