Opportunities in Divorce: Words of Wisdom
Colorado divorce lawyers have a difficult and complex job, though one that is vitally important. The duties of a Colorado family law attorney go far beyond simply fighting for the rights of the client, or mediating family law issues. Divorce attorneys have to also act as confidantes, partners, and to some degree counselors, offering words of comfort and (we hope) wisdom to clients who are going through one of the most difficult periods with which a person can deal.
Fortunately, there are thousands of years’ worth of wise words from which we can draw. The trick is to find the inspiration from those who have come before. Words of Wisdom for Women in Divorce provides many helpful pieces of advice and inspiration which can help women view divorce as an opportunity in their lives, rather than as a curse.
The article reminds us that, as Henry Ford said, “Failure is only the opportunity to begin again more intelligently.” Yes, a divorce represents the unfortunate end of a marriage and a partnership that both parties thought would last forever. Failure, however, is not a horrible thing—indeed, it’s something that happens to all of us.
The key is not to view this failed relationship as some sort of insurmountable obstacle, or something that represents the end of all things. Divorce can represent a real opportunity to start again, to forge ahead with your life using a new outlook. It is a chance to take what you’ve learned and apply it to a brand new start. The end of your marriage need not define where you go in the future; the only thing that it defines is where you have been in the past. All things in life are opportunities to learn; this applies to divorce as well.
