If you have spent a large portion of your life in a marriage, it will likely be difficult to adjust to life as a single person again. With the right attitude and understanding, it could be easier than you expect.
Being on your own leaves you all the tasks you were responsible for before, and the added responsibilities your ex-spouse handled as well. You may need to make adjustments in your career, finances, career, and family arrangements.
If you have feelings of resentment, and are having a hard time accepting the life you are now living, here are a few questions to ask yourself that may help you let go of the past and move on to embrace your life.
Have I had time to grieve? If you haven’t, that’s understandable. Take time to relax and reflect. Once you’ve taken some personal time to recover from the divorce, you’ll be ready to get back to your routine.
Was my relationship healthy? If your marriage was filled with irresolvable differences, then a divorce was likely the best solution. Realizing this will help you heal and therapy might prove satisfying.
Remind yourself that there are other companions out there for you. Begin new friendships, or rekindle old ones. It’s always a benefit to have the support of others. This will help distract you from negative thinking.
