I came across the following short article that offers suggestions for those who get "stuck in grief" following a divorce:
Stuck In Grief Article
Additionally, the author gives a recommended reading list of 7 books
that you may find helpful.
Here's an excerpt from the article:
7 Tools for Getting on the Other Side of Your Divorce Grief
Those who get on the other side take advantage of a combination of at least three of the following seven tools:
- They read books to help them sort out their experience and their feelings/reaction to the experience;
- They have a strong support network that will go the distance with them (often friends and family are available for a couple of months but then you may feel like you’re a downer all the time or that you’re burdening them (or they stop taking or returning your calls!);
- They journal;
- They seek professional help;
- They join a support group;
- They allow themselves to be where they are and they don’t try to rush through the grief process or pretend to be further along than they are;
- They want to feel better (this one may seem obvious but it's crucial to getting better!).
