Eva Longoria, the “Desperate Housewives” actress who recently split from NBA player, Tony Parker, took on a rather interesting and optimistic approach when communicating about her divorce;  “I am not letting this take over. Something great is around the corner – I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen.”

Actor and film producer, David Arquette, recently faced divorce proceedings from actress Courtney Cox, who is best known for her role as “Monica” on the hit TV series “Friends”. The ex-Hollywood couple has been reported to remain friends and to cope with the fact that their marriage simply failed – without blaming the other.  Mr. Arquette has said that going through a divorce is a difficult process; “It’s heartbreaking and it hurts really bad. It can really mess with your head.”

Longoria’s positive outlook and Arquette’s welcoming style are nothing short of admirable. Let’s face it – it is difficult to look on the brighter side when facing a divorce. After all, your world may be splitting in half – sometimes, literally. Unfortunately, the resulting depression and sadness so inherit in divorce can overwhelm. All too often, litigants spend good money after bad being angry – trying to get even with their soon to be ex-spouse.

No matter who you are, divorce has the deep and real potential to take over your mind; but, the way you react is totally up to you. Optimism and hopefulness is exclusive to those who are able to look past the perceived injustice of it all.  Confidence in a new beginning is paramount.

It really does not have to be so bad. Divorce does not have to destroy and you should not let it destroy you or your family.
