If want to feel happy after your divorce or separation then you need to take control of your emotions and the situation. The expression “Man Up” is not always nice to hear but you can be sad and still be a strong man. In fact, being a strong man is the best thing you can possibly do for yourself right now.

If your relationship is over or leaving you unhappy then it’s time to do something about it.

“Do not drown in a cup of water” – Rev T D Jakes

What do you want to hear? What do you need to hear?

I spent too long in unhappy relationships and even longer getting over them. What a shocking waste of life.

Wake up! Grab yourself and the situation by the balls.

You are not alone. You are not a failure. This was a chapter in your life. There is a reason this has happened.

Good or bad or both that chapter must now be over.

Even if you want to fix it or get back together the only thought that will help right now is that it is over.

The only next step is a total reset.

Others have experienced this and are now fine. 

The path to happiness has already been walked and you are on it.  

You are not alone.

Taking control of this situation really is down to you. The Team Super Dad Rebuild course is the ideal place to start. You will also save yourself time, money and struggle with some 1-on-1 Dad Coaching to get through this challenging time.

DO NOT ….none of these will help

👎Bombard her with text messages or over communicate the same message.

👎Beg, plead or show desperation.

👎Look for answers by blaming, resenting or hating her.

👎Blame yourself, feel sorry for yourself and/or decide that you are not good enough.

👎Go into fatal thinking. Your World is not going to crumble. You will work this out. You will be ok.

👎Go into fantasy thinking, desperately making up happy alternative endings to this one.

👎Try and mask your upset. Not with drink, drug, porn, prostitutes, food, gambling…these attempts to numb the pain will just lead to more struggle.

👎Go into meltdown about what will happen to your children. It is a process. Get very wise and deal with that. It will be tough to start with. It will get better. They will be ok. You will always be their Daddy.

DO ….all of these will help

👍Take responsibility for what has happened. You played your part. You chose to be in the relationship. You definitely made mistakes that helped lead to this.

👍Decide what you do want. Create a picture of the life you desire and start to make it happen.

👍Get organised. Your emotions may be all over the place but do the basics right.

👍Put good people around you. This is a time to lean on family and friends. You would do it for them.

👍Be patient and calm. Even if you don’t feel it you can still be it. Especially when talking to her.

👍See your Doctor. You may be depressed. You may need medication.

👍Exercise. Physical activity stimulates the release of dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin. These brain chemicals play an important part in regulating your mood.

👍Find reasons to smile and laugh. Even if you don’t feel like it. Smiling and laughing causes the brain to release dopamine, which in turn makes us feel happy.

👍Do things for you. Plan your week and consider starting a new hobby or interest.

👍Find a counsellor. I will coach you through the situation. A good counsellor could help you resolve any emotional trauma from this or previous relationships and loss.

Taking control of this situation really is down to you. The Team Super Dad Rebuild course is the ideal place to start. You will also save yourself time, money and struggle with some 1-on-1 Dad Coaching to get through this challenging time.
