The reality TV watching world was shocked as the summer of 2015 started, when it was revealed wholesome reality star Josh Duggar was the center of a scandal that involved claims he molested underage girls, some of whom are his sisters. The show that made the Duggar name a household term has since been cancelled, but people still can’t seem to get enough of the family. It seemed the world waited with baited breath to find out whether Josh’s wife would file for divorce, and now all the attention has turned to some of the Duggar sisters. This turnabout just goes to show that even in the midst of a storm, there are ways to move forward.
With no divorce pending for Josh and Anna Duggar, the TLC network is set to air a show starring two of Josh’s sisters. Jill and Jessa Duggar are slated to star opposite their husbands on a series that follows these two Duggar sisters and their families. Even though this story does not include a divorce, it does show how to move on after a difficult time in life. It is unlikely that the average citizen would be given this type of opportunity, but there other ways to pick yourself back up after what seems like devastation. Because divorce is seen as a devastating event by some, here are some tips on things you can do to regroup after divorce:
- Reconnect with old friends.
- Take a vacation, alone.
- Discover a new hobby, or restart a hobby given up during marriage.
- Volunteer your time to a local charity or organization that is in line with your personal beliefs.
- Redecorate your house, taking care to pack away sentimental items for your kids from your years as a family, but also allowing yourself to start fresh with things suited to your personal taste.
- Get a pet.
You can also take advice from a trusted friend or family member, or consider going to visit a counselor. Many times a fresh perspective is all you need to help get through a rough patch, and before you know it you are back on your feet. We can help by making sure the terms of your divorce enable you to start fresh, without dependence on your former spouse. For help, call our office today.
