Your support group

You’ll need people you can rely on and talk to in the coming weeks & months. You might need some physical help around the home, or even some financial assistance.

Your support group could include family, friends, your GP, and maybe even a counsellor or psychologist. Rely on these people for support but not for legal advice.

And but be sure to make your own decisions about your future.

What you might be feeling

You’re going through a time of significant change, and you’ll probably experience a whole range of strong emotions.

It’s normal for your mood to shift frequently. You might also notice that you and your ex are experiencing different things at different times.

You might be starting to move on with your life while your ex is still struggling (or vice versa). At times you might feel… angry, easily frustrated, overwhelmed, or anxious and insecure.

These emotions are common for people going through a stressful time. Some people have trouble sleeping, have trouble concentrating, feel extremely tired all the time, eat too little or too much, or drink more alcohol.

Surround yourself with positive people and draw comfort and strength from them.



Understanding and accepting that you’ll have highs and lows over the coming months can make it easier to cope when you’re feeling down.

But please remember, things will get better with time. You will move forward and create new dreams and plans for the future.

Look after yourself

Now is a good time to look after yourself.

  • Do some things that will take your mind off your worries.

  • Be sure to eat healthy meals.

  • Get some exercise.

  • Make the time to relax and catch up with friends.

  • And don’t be too hard on yourself.

Look after yourself

Don’t wait. Take some action straight away.

​​Talking to family and friends can help, but if you’d feel more comfortable talking to someone else, you could try a counsellor or doctor.

There are a lot of organisations that can offer support and advice.

What next?

Your priority should be to take care of yourself.

Make contact with important people in your life.
