No, this does not mean what you think it means. I'm not telling you to go stalk your ex or to try to fight for a relationship that has obviously run its course. Do not fight your feelings by pretending that they don’t exist. You need to recognize that is okay to have different feelings. You may feel sad, angry, anxious, confused and exhausted but most of all you will be anxious about the future. Even if the marriage was torture, venturing into the unknown could prove to be far more terrifying. You do not need to go through this alone. Reach out to family and friends and various support groups.
Reach out to others for support
Support from others will be one of the most important factors in healing from the effects of a divorce. You need to spend time with people who love, support and energize you. You however need to choose wisely as you need persons who are positive and genuinely wants to listen to you. You can even get outside help if you feel that is best. Make an effort to meet new people as you have a whole new world of possibilities at your feet.
Take care of your well-being
A divorce can be a highly stressful and life changing phenomenon and it is bound to take a toll on even the strongest person. For this reason you need to take care of your overall well being, your physical, emotional and mental health. Take time each day to nurture yourself, take time out to breathe and pay attention to what you need.
Learn important lessons from the experience
We should always use moments of emotional crisis as an opportunity to grow. You do not need to be consumed by the turmoil you are facing. You need to step back and take time to look at the bigger picture, try not to repeat mistakes and learn to forgive yourself and others.
Look towards new beginnings
Every end of a phase is always an opportunity to start anew and grow emotionally. You need to accept that your time with your husband has ended but you're still alive and you will get through this heartache. You need to travel, try new sports, gardening or even try to do all the things you have always wanted to do! Make a to-do list and get cracking.
Divorce is never the end of the world. Take everything stepby step and move on with your life.
