For many people thanksgiving is a time to reflect and give thanks and be grateful for life's joys and blessings.   Easy to do when life is going well, but what about when things aren't so great. This can be particularly true for those contemplating divorce or who are in the midst of divorce or separation.  How do you pull it together, have some semblance of happiness and get through the day without collapsing into tears or being consumed by anger or pain? The simple answer: with as much grace and dignity as possible. Here are some tips to help you get through;
Don't fake happiness just to make others feel comfortable.  It is fine not to be in the best of moods; after all you are going through a tough time.  

 Don't stop celebrating. Marital problems are difficult but need not be all consuming. You still have some positives in your life; children, family, friends, career. You may need to dig deep to unearth the positives, but keep digging until you find them.
Discover a new way to celebrate; pot luck with friends, or a day of relaxation alone curled up with a good book or watching an empowering chick flick like Waiting To Exhale or Thelma and Louise.
Most importantly, take some time for yourself; have some fun and enjoy.
