Getting divorced can be a trying and emotionally exhausting experience with lasting effects. Many people find themselves having difficulty trusting and opening themselves up to new partners after divorce. When there is infidelity or a contentious divorce, one’s trust can be shaken. The person they fell in love with can become a source of pain and doubt. Without recognizing divorce’s full impact, it can be very difficult for people to learn to trust again.
However, there is always hope! Learning to trust again is possible and can become a great opportunity to grow! Taking steps to make yourself open involves being vulnerable and is an act of courage. But how does one do this in a safe and comfortable manner? The first step is to be sure to give yourself enough time after the end of your relationship. A divorce is a highly emotionally charged experience, so having time by yourself is critical before venturing into new potential relationships. Keeping past relationship experiences from coloring and influencing new ones is key in being able to build trust with someone new. Keeping yourself in the here and now is a very helpful, but this is a skill that takes time to master and cannot be done when one is still reeling from a fresh break up!
