Storage and the 4Ds of Life (Divorce)

April 2017

TGavel and wedding ringshis is the second part in our four-part series about the four D’s of life. This particular phase is about going through a divorce. While none of us wants that to be where our marriage ends up, the facts remain that around half of all marriages will face this problem at some point. If your life has encountered this obstacle, then you know just how many facets of your life it can encompass. Here are a few things that you can do when you are sorting through your life following a recent divorce.

The Emotions that Coincide with a Divorce Are Unique to Every Individual

How you sort through everything following your divorce is a personal choice. Some people are going to tell you to hurry up and move on, while others are going to tell you to get back out there when you are ready. The process you go through is as unique as you are. You need to process your emotions on your own time and in your own way. Some love indulging in going through each memento and grieving as it allows them closure and gives them the ability to move on. Others want everything out of sight so they can deal with it another day.

For you, go with what feels right. Take your time going through things if you want, or put everything aside for that proverbial rainy day. The best way to achieve this is to store the items until you are ready to process them. They are there, at the ready, when you want or need them to be. When you need them out of sight, you have that option, too. You don’t have to spend each and every day pouring through your belongings, trying to piece a new life back together. Take it as it comes, and follow what feels best to you.

Storing Items is Easy, So You Can Tackle the Hard Stuff

If you turn to Total Storage to store your items, you have picked an easy solution. Your items are there, any time of the day or night, for you to come pick up or sort through at your convenience. You can get as big or small of a unit as you need, and you can even downsize as you sort through some of your items. That way, you can function with your everyday life when you need to, and go through your divorce items when you want and are ready to.
