Surviving The Holidays! Why Divorced People Are More Relieved When It’s Over

For much of the world, the holidays are a time for joy and celebration, but as an online divorce review site, we often see the opposite of this. Instead of being a time of togetherness and happiness, divorced people are wrestling with issues like loneliness, hostile co-parenting, and children who don’t understand why Mom and Dad won’t be together for them.

More often than not, divorced people are relieved to get through the holidays because the narrative that surrounds them doesn’t line up with the reality they face. Those who relate to the above-described scenario now feel like they can breathe again. Here are just some of the things that they “get back” once the holidays are done.

1. Healthy routines.

Christmas and New Year’s can interfere with the healthy, established routines that they’ve taken comfort in all year. It means that if they want to go to a store two hours before closing, they can still look around and have fun instead of being rushed out for “special holiday hours.” It also means that they don’t have to navigate as much traffic — foot and auto — and that they don’t have to dent their budget with a slew of gifts for the family they have left.

2. Less temptation. 

Temptation takes many forms during the holidays. It can come in overeating, in damaging alcohol, in being with someone simply because you don’t want to be alone. The holidays are often a showcase for all the things that a divorced person is missing as a result of ending their marriage. It can cloud judgment when they’re constantly bombarded with the seemingly picture perfect lives of others.

3. The chance for a fresh start.

The holidays often promise hope of a better year to come, but until they’re over, it’s usually about maintaining the status quo. When the last celebration is done, many divorced people see what lies ahead as opportunity for action, and they feel a rejuvenated spirit to embrace it head-on.

Now that the holidays are over, it’s time to relish the advantages that await you as a divorced person and to step into the routines and goals that will enrich your life.
