Taragh Bracken Is Not A Psychologist—She Is A Lawyer

You’ve grown up to think of yourself in the stark white ballgown, walking up the aisle to meet the love of your life as tears glisten down your bridesmaids’ cheeks. Then one day, fast-forward three years later and you feel like you could pull your hair out every time you walk into your home to meet your husband. It seems as though all you do is fight and bad talk each other. He has a completely different idea of fun than you—one that consists of only working away your life on a computer screen instead of taking breathers to enjoy the great outdoors and run away with the wind. Your lives are spinning out in parallels.

 

Having the Divorce Talk With Kids

Next thing you know, you both are seated in front of each other with the intermediary of a lawyer, the best in town by the name of Taragh Bracken, to keep you from ripping each other apart. You have kids, and custody will be even more difficult now that it is settled. You are getting a divorce and you cannot even imagine how you’ll both fathom seating your two children and telling them about the predicament that you’ve come to. How will this shape your children’s future? Will this sad story of divorce cause them to get into drugs or alcohol at an early age, thus neglecting their studies and worldly ambitions? It’s been too long that you’ve tried to keep the relationship going. Enough of the excuses. Your kids can tell through the veneer that you both are unhappy.

 

A Ghost of A Self-Esteem

Perhaps you used to walk down the streets with your Louboutin red heels, feeling like a million bucks because you had the prince-worthy husband that you’ve always dreamt of and you’ve continued to score great promotions in your career. Now that you have settled your divorce it’s as if the thought is plastered all over your forehead. You look for validation in your friends, new men that you meet at the local bar, and even your attorney Taragh Bracken, whom—let’s face it—sometimes has to act as a psychologist working as the renowned family doctor.

 

Don’t Rely on The Lawyer

While it’s sweet that you have made practically a friend out of your lawyer, telling them your humiliations and every little secret, they cannot continue to act as a psychologist unless you want to go broke every time you spend an hour with them (which sometimes can cost four times the amount of a shrink!). Stop saying you are ok, and actually reach out for the proper resources that will help you feel better about yourself. Find yourself a psychologist who you can regularly meet with (weekly is suggested)—somewhere near your work—and subscribe to an anonymous online forum where you can interact with others going through the same thing. Also, don’t neglect your family and friends’ support. They are also there to be your backbone.
