Words of Wisdom for Women in Divorce - Fear
Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most. - Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Inspiration: After a divorce or even during the process. Most people live in some kind of fear. It may be the fear of the unknown or the fear of making a mistake. Sometimes these fears immobilize people to the point that the fear itself becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. Anything new and different has with it certain unknowns, but that can actually be exciting as it represents a new beginning, but if fear is allowed to rear its ugly head than no change can happen.
Thinking will not overcome fear but action will. - W. Clement Stone
Inspiration: I feel many people get stuck in thinking too much. They mull over every situation and try to figure out everything that can go wrong. They spend so much time and thinking that they fail to act. Fear is an emotion that will rob you of everything. It feeds on itself and the more you fear the greater the fear grows. The only solution to fight fear is to take action. Even if it is one small step toward something that you desire in your life and fear has prevented you from moving forward.
Action: Take one step today toward something that you desire that up until this point fear has prevented you from achieving.
While we are focusing on fear, worry, or hate, it is not possible for us to be experiencing happiness, enthusiasm or love. - Bo Bennett, Year to Success
Inspiration: This is so true in the event when a trauma has occurred in one's life. The negatives of fear, worry and hate tend to consume a person and the very thing we wish and hope will not happen actually become our reality. We are attracting the very things we don't want. We are a magnet of our emotions. If we are constantly attracting pain in our lives, we need to ask ourselves what negative feelings I am holding on to. Divorce is ugly and it leaves deep wounds and scars and only a mindset change where we focus on happiness, enthusiasm and love will change what comes into our lives.
The most fearful unbelief is unbelief in yourself. - Thomas Carlyle
Inspiration: It is tough to believe in oneself after one has been deeply hurt. So many doubts, so many fears, so little belief in oneself. Even if the divorce is not your fault - the nagging doubts of "why did it happen" "could I have prevented it?" "What did I do wrong" "why didn't I see it coming" On one level you are good at talking to yourself about the things that went wrong and on another level there are doubts. You can only fight doubts by finding all the positive things about yourself
Colorado uses a Schedule of Basic Child Support Guidelines, which is calculated on the incomes of both parents and the cost of day care. In Colorado, child support must be paid until the minor child reaches the age of 19, or graduates from high school, whichever comes later. The court may also require that the parent pay for college after age 19, but these payments will not be made to the parent with whom the child lives. Instead, child support payments after age 19 go to the child or the college.
