Separation of the couple: how to cope?
Going through a separation is not easy, but a few tips can help you cope and start a new life.
- Don't deny things and accept the separation when it becomes inevitable.
- Don't isolate yourself; instead, get out, see your family and friends and open up to others.
- Don't let anger take over - it's normal to feel resentful, especially in the beginning, but letting it take over won't help you.
- Don't hide things from your children and take the time to explain the separation to them in simple words, without going into details that are none of their business.
