The pain experienced after a divorce can be quite traumatic. The help of a counselor, a psychologist, or a trusted friend can be essential to moving past all the negativity. Another way to get help is to read books on the subject of surviving divorce, but the divorce book market has many titles, and it may not be a book on divorce you need. How can you decide which resources are best?
We do have a list of recommended reading here on our website, but another list of books has been put up at Huffington Post. Many of these books go beyond divorce topics to helping people find direction and clarity after a divorce is finished. Some of them are about how to deal with a past spouse's mental problems, such as Stop Walking on Eggshells, a book about borderline personality disorder. There are also several humorous books. Humor can be very healing after the heavy emotions of a divorce.
To see the full list, check out the link here, but don't forget to read some serious books on divorce as well like the ones in our list. We have found that an understanding of the feelings around divorce and reading about the experiences of other people are helpful in moving past the negativity and getting on with your life.
