How to cope with divorce as a single mother
Add to myWE:
Take it one day at a time
Focus and live in the present moment. Yes, you can plan for the future but it is important not to worry and stress about the future. Or else, it will make your divorce more difficult to get through and you will affect yourself emotionally and mentally.
Take the baby steps towards rebuilding your life again with your children.
At times, a divorce can create an identity crisis. If you suspect that you might be struggling with this issue, read this article, signs that you are going through an identity crisis by Assia Houston, Online Life Coach.
Plan a budget
Now, that you'll be a single mother running a household, it is essential that you have a budget in place. Whether you have an income or you're receiving alimony from your partner - it never hurts to have financial control. You should also plan to save money in case of any emergencies.
Don't jump into rebound relationships
Whilst it's understandable to feel lonely during this period and to be in need of comfort. However, rebound relationships are not the solution. After a divorce, a woman is left feeling vulnerable and it can lead to you feeling even more hurt and heartbroken. This will also make it more difficult for your children.
Take some time to work on yourself and your kids before jumping into the next relationship.

Educate yourself and build your career
This is your chance to invest in yourself. If you don't have a career, get educated and learn new skills so that you can get a job. If you already have a career, you can use this difficult time to advance. Plan career goals or aim for a promotion.
These factors will help you to build independence and it's a stepping stone towards healing.
