How do you get through difficult times? Do you hold things in? Do you overshare with people you barely know? Do you count on one good friend? Do you confide in one or more family members? There is no single way of seeking help that is always helpful. Depending on your circumstances, some approaches will work better than others. If you are fortunate enough to have one or more people in your life in whom you can confide, you probably feel at least a sense of relief after sharing with that person or those people.
Divorce Support Services In MN
If the people in your life that you rely on can be counted on to provide unconditional support, you are truly fortunate. They can be great sources of support, but you may find yourself spinning your wheels at times, especially if the counsel they are providing you is in response to your decision to divorce your spouse. It is not a weakness in your friendship, and probably not a weakness in the people you are confiding in but spinning one’s wheels is often the result of receiving counsel from people who have wonderful intentions, but who also do not have specific training in problem solving. AMS Mediation is a service that combines compassionate support with professional training in the issues that affect people who are going through divorce.
You may find, after your divorce decree, that you are not yet feeling relieved. The stress of your divorce seems to be hanging on, and you may even find yourself missing your spouse. Friends and family members may be saintly in their willingness to listen, but absent specific training in how to maximize the helping relationship, you may find yourself stuck. AMS Mediation provides divorce mediation services and parenting support services that can provide a similar kind of compassion as that which is offered by your confidants, but our help is combined with strategies that help you overcome whatever is holding you back.
Moving On After Divorce
Close friends and family almost always want what is best for you, but AMS Mediation offers the kind of objectivity that the people who love us most often cannot provide. The counseling relationship offered by a divorce mediation service allows for a different kind of honesty, which in turn allows us to offer feedback that friends and family often feel they cannot offer. In many cases, their loyalty to you prevents them from seeing things that could be holding you back from moving on as well as you might.
