Ending a marriage is difficult and it takes time to unravel your confused feelings. It is essential that you grant yourself permission to grieve the loss of your marriage. Before you can release your feelings of hurt, sadness and-oh-yes-fear you need to stop denying you have these feelings. Instead embrace your feelings and move through them to the other side.
- Find A Passion
Were you authentic in your marriage? Did you do everything you wanted with no questions asked? Now you are free to embrace those passions you have always had. Go for it! Live your life. Take that tennis class you always wanted to or find a new career path. Give yourself the opportunity to enjoy your life again. Try not to get stuck in those angry, immobilizing feelings towards your ex, because you are preventing yourself from getting your groove on.
- Get A Social Network
Everyone needs support when they are going through troubling times. Divorce is no different. Be careful who you are surrounding yourself with. You will benefit from family and friends who can be supportive and trusted. Also, make an effort to meet new people who offer you new energy.
