I saw my parents go through a divorce. No counseling after. Family and friends helped my mom, and staying very busy to keep her mind off it. Of course, she cried for some period but then told herself to get over it after some more time to move on with her life. My advice based on what my parents have told me: grieve because it’s okay to do so. But then let go, and know that your life continues. focus on yourself by staying busy and with other loved ones who are positive and can uplift you during a difficult time.

Sometimes it's about finding the right counselor. I had several useless ones before finding one who was great. I don't have any other advice, but sorry you're going through that. One of the worst things I can imagine.

I went through a divorce, and what I eventually learned is that you have to give yourself time to grieve. They say a divorce is the emotional equivalent of losing a close relative, and I agree with that. It took me awhile to realize that it was okay for me to feel sad even though the divorce was the right thing for both of us.

Why don’t you want to go to counseling?

For me the biggest thing to realize is that each of us is a master of our own fate. It’s the end of an era - the next era will be terrible or great, but it’s outcome is largely dependent on a total sum of every day that I live now. So I work everyday to make it great. I work on my house, my kid, my heath.. I cultivate my spirituality and healthy relationships. I invest in what I care about, and I don’t spend time looking back. I am the happiest I’ve ever been

Usually being opposed to counseling mean he/she didn’t tell you what you wanted to hear. The best counselors are the ones that make you take a good hard look in the mirror and tell you what you don’t want to hear. Best wishes. Divorce sucks

Recently divorced. Here’s what was very effective for me: 1) joined a really nice gym and continue to go consistently. 2) made conscious effort to rebuild friendships and support system around me 3) made sure I went out and socialized a lot, even during work travel. 4) this is the most important one: reminded people around me that sympathy is not needed and they shouldn’t assume I should stay in a marriage or try to save it because society wants it to work out. I’m better off divorced and you may be as well. Ask for support, not sympathy.

Also, maybe it isn't too late to salvage the marriage? I don't know the specifics, but if it's not too late and there's anything left you can do to save it, maybe give it a shot so you at least know you've done everything you can?
