Divorce is not easy, and it is true! No matter how much one agrees or disagrees, divorce can sometimes drain you out completely. On the one hand, you would be emotionally overwhelmed, while on the other, it would overburden you with responsibilities. It can be challenging from all perspectives and may deter you completely. It is the most crucial time, and the only way is to be mindful and contemplative. These hard times require you to pull yourself together and overcome every obstacle coming your way.
