With the holidays approaching and families all over making plans on how they are going to celebrate them together, now is a difficult time for anyone to have to go through a divorce. Although divorces are some of the most difficult situations people find themselves faced with regardless of what time of year the process starts, they can be much harder to get through during Christmas or New Year’s when you see other couples and families out enjoying each other’s company and displaying their excitement for the December holidays and the start of a new year.
With that said, if you are having a hard time accepting your divorce or find that the holidays are only making this time more stressful for you, consider joining a support group with people alike who are available to discuss with you the best methods to implement to help you make it through the holiday times without feeling depressed or distraught. Now, if you aren’t sure where to find a support group that focuses on the issues you are currently facing, below we highlight a few provided on behalf of Psychology Today that you might contact to learn more about the services and support they offer.
- If you are a mother who is looking to collaborate with other women who might be struggling with the idea of your family not being able to spend the holidays together or the divorce have raised other concerns regarding parenting, Legacy Behavior Health has a group called “Mom Talk” that might be the type of support group that you need right now.
- The Elevate Wellness Studio offers a course that caters to those who are looking to “learn meditation techniques to decrease anxiety and depression, improve concentration and enhance relationships.” Perhaps this might work well for someone who is looking to move past the feelings they are experiencing toward their divorce and focus on bettering themselves.
