There is one hero in your life – not your ex, or your parents or your boyfriend or girlfriend – only you.
Think of the airplane analogy – in case of emergency, you put on your oxygen mask before helping the others around you. This is true during major life changes such as divorce. Helping yourself empowers you to care for others.
Life after divorce can sometimes feel lonely. Fill your life with companionship and love by adopting a dog or cat.
Take time to relax everyday. In a world filled with constant input, quiet and calm becomes a soothing balm for the spirit. Encourage personal peace.
Avoiding your fears allows them time to grow. Rather than waiting until things reach a boiling point, face your fears directly using facts and reality as your gauge.
“Get cozy, not lonely. Surround yourself with pillows and blankets in bed.” - Allison Pescosolido, M.A. To relieve feelings of loneliness, create a cozy resting space. The presence of pillows and blankets encourages calm.
