Let’s talk about the “F” word.

So often the breakdown of a relationship sparks the fear of failure and carries with it many emotions such as shame, hurt, disappointment and resentment or anger.

We often say to our clients that there is no rule book as to how to navigate a relationship breakdown and the same way it has taken years to build up it will take some time to heal. A relationship breakdown may leave you feeling lost and unsure where to even begin.

During a relationship breakdown parties often operate at heightened emotions and can get caught up in how they are feeling which means they are exhausted when it comes to thinking practically as to how to move forward with childcare and property arrangements.

That is where Shanahan Family Law steps in. We replace Failure with Future. We work with you to take back control of your situation with a holistic approach to help you move forward for a brighter future ahead.

The Positivity Blog has posted 9 Tips to Overcome Failure which include:

  1. First, just accept how you feel.
  2. Remember: you are not a failure just because you have had a setback in your life.
  3. Be constructive and learn from this situation.
  4. Remind yourself: anyone who wants to do things of value in life will fail at some point, but it does not mean all ventures will result in failures.
  5. Let it out into the light aka VENT!
  6. Find inspiration and support from your world.
  7. Move forward again, do not get stuck in mulling this situation over for too long.
  8. Act on that plan right after you have drawn it up.
  9. Improve your self-esteem.
