Hurting after divorce?

If you’ve recently ended your love relationship, you’re likely hurting. If you’re not, you’ve either yet to feel the pain or have already begun to work through some of the difficult steps of rebuilding. Pain is nature’s way of telling us we need to heal. Dr. Bruce Fisher identified 19 steps to adjusting to the end of an intimate relationship and relieving that pain. The steps are as follows:

  • Denial
  • Fear
  • Adaptation
  • Loneliness
  • Friendship
  • Guilt/Rejection
  • Grief
  • Anger
  • Letting Go
  • Self-Worth
  • Transition
  • Openness
  • Love
  • Trust
  • Relatedness
  • Sexuality
  • Singleness
  • Purpose
  • Freedom

To learn more, read Dr. Fisher’s book, Rebuilding When Your Relationship Ends, take a Fisher Rebuilding Seminar or take the Fisher Divorce Adjustment Scale. Visit for details.
