Dr. Ronit Lami, a psychologist in Beverly Hills, answers:
We enter our marriage thinking it will be forever, but somewhere along the way it doesn’t go exactly how we imagined it, and we find ourselves in the process of divorce.
“Why?” we ask. After all we have invested in our marriage (time, energy, our whole self and more) now everything crumbles. It is hard for us to accept, to let go, to comprehend. Our emotions feel like they are on a roller coaster. We may have conflicting feelings about the divorce. There might be days when one feels excited about the new life ahead and other days when the fear of the future creeps up. Divorce is not something that anyone wants to do, but something that has to be done, once agreed upon.
So, with all the confusion and the slew of emotions, how can one stay sane throughout the process of divorce?
