Divorce can be a time of upheaval, but as we always say, when one door closes, another opens. One of the best ways to navigate the challenges divorced women face is with the support of others- learning through a friend’s past experience, giving or seeking advice or just simply being that ear to listen and shoulder to cry on. Today, there are hundreds of Facebook groups ready to help women embrace their fresh start, whether they are entering the workforce, tackling single parenting or even stepping into a role as a step parent. These groups are meant to a lifeline and many women find themselves with new friends and mentors to help them through their journey. To help you find the right group, we’ve created a list of 10 Facebook groups for you to explore.
Because different groups focus on various aspects of life, it may be a good idea to join more than one. To help save time with your search, we’re including the official description of each one, along with brief notes about what you’ll find when you visit.
At Worthy, our focus is helping you create a new chapter after divorce. Whether it’s selling your engagement ring, gaining financial independence or learning to self-love and self-care, we’re here. Our Facebook group is meant to be a place where you can connect with us and others, wherever you are on your divorce path. This is a closed group, so your private discussions remain confidential.
