Divorce and job-related considerations

People often think of how divorce could impact their relationship with their children or their finances. These are definitely important issues to review if you are planning on ending your marriage, but it is important to consider some of the other reasons why divorce could change your life. For example, you may experience job-related changes in a number of ways, whether your performance at work suffers because of your divorce or you even notice positive changes following the end of your marriage.

Divorce can leave people feeling tired, depressed and even angry. All of these emotions can carry over into the workplace, so it is important to make sure that you do not let your divorce get in the way of other facets of your life, such as your career. You may also have less free time outside of work and you might even need to ask your employer for some time off.

Although there are a variety of potential negative effects, divorce can also be beneficial for someone in their career path. Some people are able to start a new position after their marriage ends, whether they find the motivation to turn their life around or they can move to a new city to secure a better job. Moreover, some people feel as if a weight has been lifted off of their shoulders once a toxic marriage ends, and this can also improve workplace performance and one’s outlook on life in general.

Each time I met with Dianne she was concerned for my well being, and was sincerely empathetic about my situation. She made a horrible chapter in my life bearable.
