Liza Caldwell and Kimberly Mishkin discussing divorce advice

The One Thing You Absolutely MUST Do To Survive Your Divorce

Are you devastated, overwhelmed, or simply stuck when it comes to figuring out how to survive your divorce? Do you wonder constantly how you are going to get through it—all the tears and scary nights, navigating the unknowns, the paperwork, the kids, the house, the EVERYTHING? You can search the internet for divorce advice until your fingers are numb and your eyelids are as heavy as your heart, and still, you might feel like you’re getting nowhere.

During a divorce, we’re living in survival mode. Our lives have suddenly become chaotic, if they weren’t already, and choosing what aspects to prioritize and what really matters can feel like an impossible task to even start let alone accomplish. The solution seems simple, but it’s so hard to do sometimes: you must ask for help.

An outsider’s perspective and divorce advice can make all the difference. You aren’t your best self right now. As women, we tend to take care of everyone else before we take care of ourselves. We are used to being perpetually stretched thin. But in this case, you must recognize you cannot care for everybody else well if you do not stop and take care of yourself. Sometimes your support system is larger than you realize—you just have to look around and let go of your pride.

In this short video, Liza and Kim discuss the power of asking for help. (Sometimes the simplest divorce advice is the best kind.) They also share ways SAS clients have found help from the most unexpected sources.

    Hello thinking about getting a divorce which is heartbreaking. Plus I am close to retirement and thinking about collecting social security. It seems like a lot and I want to be sure I make wise choices. I don’t like to make decisions when I’m emotional.
