The stress and strain of divorce is so intense. The emotional pain is overwhelming. It is a battle just to get through the day. You can’t think straight. You walk around with a pit in your stomach. Often you are afraid of what the future will hold. You can’t imagine a day when things will be “normal” again.
Here is a way to begin to offset the pain and regain some peace in your life. Think back to those times in your life when you were more carefree, when life was simple. What types of things did you really enjoy doing? How did you really enjoy spending your time? What hobbies did you have? What activities did you do? What music did you listen to? Pick one of these things and do it. Even if it brings you just one minute of peace in the midst of your turmoil, it is productive. The idea is to find that one thing that brings you peace and make that part of your daily routine. Not only will you find that your anger will diminish, but those moments of peace will grow in duration and frequency.
Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it. The eyes of the Lord are directed toward the righteous and his ears toward their cry. – Psalm 34:15-16
