It’s easy to lose yourself in the stress and hurt of a separation. You can get so focused on trying to manage all of the unknowns and maneuvering so much change that you forget your core values and who you really are. But, one day the separation will be behind you and you’ll want to hold your head high and be proud of how you conducted yourself. You don’t want to realize that you’ve allowed bitterness and anger to turn you into someone else.
𝗧𝗿𝘆 𝗮𝘀𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿𝘀𝗲𝗹𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝘀𝗲 𝗾𝘂𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀:
What example do I want to set for my kids?
What are my core values?
How do I want to feel after this separation?
Am I proud of how I’m conducting myself?
Is my behaviour in line with my moral and spiritual beliefs?
Don’t allow this temporary stress to change who you really are as a person. It’s always worth it to take a step-back, regroup, and consider if you’re happy with the way in which you’re conducting yourself. You’ll be happier with the decisions you make in mediation, and you’ll sleep better at night knowing that you stayed true to yourself.
