How can a group be helpful?

Going through separation and divorce can be like riding a roller coaster of emotions, at first you may feel completely overwhelmed, as time passes you may find yourself feeling hopeful for the future only to be knocked down again by black cloud of sadness, anger, anxiety or confusion. It may feel good to know that this is completely normal, the ending of a significant relationship is a major life transition and it can also be a time of great personal growth as you make your way through the process. However when you are in the midst of a separation, in the process of divorce or after your divorce is final, it can be helpful to join with others who understand what you are going through, together you can validate and normalize what you are each feeling, and you can walk away knowing you have a place to go where you can be seen and heard, your pain can be held and you will be encouraged to grow and find happiness once again.
