Spotting a narcissist

Sometimes our willingness to see the best in others leads to disappointment down the line. It may be due to a behavior your partner does not even realize they exhibit; but nonetheless, it may be increasingly difficult to embrace or tolerate the behavior as the conflict escalates and slights mount during the marriage or relationship.

Job performance is often affected by divorce

Many employees do their best to keep their personal life separate from their work. Some are successful at it, while others are less so. No matter who you are, however, it is likely that the stress of going through divorce is going to affect your performance even when work seems to be the only area of your life where you feel in control. The trick is to try and minimize your divorce's impact on your professional life and focus on staying on track in your career. Below are some helpful strategies for making the best of a difficult transition. According to a divorce coach, the general themes to remember are that communication and organization are key, but there are some specific strategies as well:

Divorce often includes unexpected snags

The uncoupling process is much more involved than just dividing assets and finding a new place to live. It is important to remember that a marriage is a legal contract. During the process of dissolving that contract, there are an endless number of details that need to be worked out, including some surprises that catch people off guard.

Your marriage will thank you for saying ‘thank you’

Teaching children to express gratitude is something that starts very early on. We live in a society where appreciation and kindness are often rewarded with positive social outcomes such as friendship or workplace promotions. If people are attuned to the benefits of gratitude in daily life, why is it that some couples struggle to show gratitude in their marriage? Unsprisingly, saying thank you in your marriage also carries rewards.

Forgiveness after divorce? It can be powerful.

The process of divorce is often painful. Spouses can say and do hurtful and mean things which leave a negative impact on the other spouse. This usually goes both ways. When faced with the end of a marriage, both people feel a significant personal loss and many lash out in reaction to his or her frustration and pain. In addition to the negative feelings spouses having about the process of divorce, the relationship probably ended due to behavior during the marriage that can lead to long-term lingering negativity about the other spouse. 

Nesting as a transitional arrangement in divorce

When a couple decides to separate, one of the first considerations is regarding what will happen to the children. Many parents begin to question how the separation will affect the children, whether the separation will affect the parent-child relationship, and how will the transition impact the daily lives of all family members. One of the biggest and most significant questions is often how to minimize any negative impact on the children.

Managing co-parenting challenges after divorce

Divorce is a life-changing event. There is no way of getting around that things will not be the same for you or your children after the agreement is signed and everyone has moved on. It is often best for everyone to be out of a strained relationship but, at the same time, there are new challenges that come with parents raising children between two homes.
