Although children are the most important people when separation is taking place, you also have to consider how you will cope both emotionally and mentally. Whether you wanted to separate or not, it can be very hard to overcome as it may trigger painful and unsettling feelings.However, there are many things that can help you get through this difficult time. Try to be more positive rather than dwelling on the past.
