New York Divorce Support Groups
You're having a rough time handling your separation or divorce. Your family and friends are naturally sympathetic. Initially that's ok, but eventually you are going to want or need more support than that. You may choose to seek therapy, and that's a good option. Sometimes you may need just to talk to someone who is in the same situation as you. Your answer might be with a support group. Various organizations have support groups for separated and divorced people. Some are religious, others are non sectarian. Some are social, others are emotional. These groups can be a good place to find support, compassion and companionship from people who know first hand what you're going through. One word of caution concerning support groups, they are not therapists, and everybody's situation is different. They should be there to offer support, not advice. Always get your advice from an attorney.
