Going through a divorce is hard. It is known to break the strongest of people which is why we saw everyone hiding Atya’s divorce notice from her in Phulpakhru. Atya’s husband sent her this notice after being separated from each other. Their marriage has been the best, but the impact this news will make on her can be harrowing. So, understanding her mindset, we have listed five ways she can cope with this impending change in her life.
Keep yourself updated with the latest developments in Phulpakhru:
1. Give herself the time to grieve
The decision of separating from her spouse can be hard-hitting and easily put her in denial mode. There would be a turmoil brewing from outside and inside with a flood of feelings. Atya could start by validating her feelings, otherwise the more she ignores it, the more it is going to come back to haunt her.
2. Spend time with her loved ones
This is the perfect time for Atya to surround herself with her family and friends. She shouldn’t keep her feelings bottled up, she always has Manas and Vaidehi to talk to. Only by speaking to them, she will find a new perspective since they can rationalise her thoughts. She shouldn’t be hesitant in seeking a therapist’s help if need be.
3. Understand that it is okay to move on
Dwelling in the past and being hung on to toxicity isn’t going to lead her anywhere. From the inside, she should give herself permission to move on to a better place and happier tomorrow. She should open herself up to welcoming love in her life.
4. Use this time to explore her interests
There is always at least one thing in everyone’s life that we wanted to do but couldn’t get to it. If Atya has something pending, now is a better time than any to get on with it. This is the opportunity to utilise the time in a positive way as it will help take her time mind from the bad things.
5. Practise self-care
If there is anything that social media has taught us, then, it would be the importance of self-care in our life. She must always, always prioritise her mental health first. Keep her mind’s doors open to trying out meditation and yoga. Go on a solo trip or take herself out for dinner, this will get her out of that toxic space.
We understand none of this is going to be easy. But, if she never tries, she will never know what works best for her. After reading this, do you have any more points to add to the list? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
