Severed Roots - Becoming Whole after Divorce

Remember the Beta Fish & Peace Lilly Planter craze that swept the country a few years ago? You know the clear vases with the plant, marbles and fish in them??? Well in my attempt to create my home version of this I embarked on the task of separating a little Peace Lily so that I could have the perfect portion to insert into the vase. Although the Lily appeared to have three distinct stalks when I got to the root system it was only one root system. I tugged and pulled to no avail. In order to separate the roots I had to cut them apart.

Isnít it that way when we get divorced? Although we present as two people our root system has become one--- mind, body and Spirit. When a cut is made we are left wounded and incomplete. Many women face three similar challenges: isolation, insufficiency and inferiority. Overcoming these barriers is a challenge that should not be faced alone. A few tips for working through these obstacles are:

  • Donít go it alone- create a support system.
  • Forgive yourself for the marriage failing and commit to be the best YOU that you can be.
  • Make your voice, needs and feelings a priority in your life and teach others to do likewise.

As you reinvent yourself and your life commit to moving forward with passion, peace and purpose!

In a Georgia divorce, the mother is not automatically given custody of the children. The judge considers the best interests of the child. The court considers the age and gender of the child, the child's relationship with each parent, and the ability of each parent to take care of the child. Sometimes, the court will allow a child over 14 years old to choose who he or she will live with. Visitation rights are usually given to the parent who does not get legal custody.
