A TEN-PART SERIES
Fear, we all have it. The meek, the strong, the wise, the young. At some point in time, we all face something that gives us enough pause to cause us fear. The development and nurturing of the coping skills necessary to handle fear in the divorce process are what I have built my firm upon. Anytime you are in an unfamiliar process, such as litigation surrounding a divorce, there may be a sense of trepidation. In your head, it may sound like: "What do you do next? What is your ex going to do? What is the court going to do?" Combined with the significant changes going on in your life, these thoughts may lead you to start believing your (F)alse (E)vidence (A)ppearing (R)eal.
Over the next several weeks I will walk with you through the process of breaking down some of the fears which are commonly experienced by people who are going through or thinking about, a divorce. The exercise we will journey through is not intended to be morbid or depressing, but to highlight common concerns of people going through situations just like you have gone, or will go, though. I hope that you gain insight and strength from this series.
FEAR IN DIVORCE: Part 1
Fear (false evidence appearing real) is one of the emotions experienced by divorcing couples which escalates anxiousness, cost, antagonism, and difficulty in divorce. Before you succumb to fear, take the time to analyze what you are feeling and why you are feeling that way. Is the feeling reasonable? Is it based upon reality or is it reactionary? Learning how to analyze the causes of your fear will allow you to conquer it. In a divorce, it is imperative for you to take control of your reactions in a way which doesn't give control to your adversary. This will allow you to limit the fear you experience when dealing directly with your soon to be ex-spouse.
