I am a newly divorced woman 2 weeks now but have had 4 years time living separately as he moved to another state after we sold our house to prevent foreclosure.
During this time, we kept the lines of communication open and behaved like a family unit 3 kids now 12, 10 and 8 every summer and winter. We were both stalling the divorce and unable to reconcile. So what advice would you give to a woman who's newly divorced? As painful as it seems, time is a healer. Don't rush into relationships. It's hard if you're not mentally there and it's not fair on the other person. Every person is different.
It might be take two years and you're ready. It might take five or perhaps never. And that's ok. Live for yourself. Spend time with family, as long as they don't drain you with negativity. Don't spend time with negative people.
Enjoy your own company. Work on improving yourself. Organize trips on your own, go abroad or have a holiday on your own. You're beautiful. You're brave. You're strong. Never settle for anyone less. Make sure you value yourself. I'm not sure what advice to give; pray, stay busy, if you have a job, be grateful for that and try to work at it each day.
Keep the friends that are true to you and don't judge you. Make a life for yourself that you will like and enjoy. Know that some days are much harder than others. Know that just because someone stops loving you; you may not automatically stop loving them. It doesn't work that way. Find a way to use that love to set yourself free of them. Give them to the universe. Revenge thoughts are not good for you; put that energy into good thoughts for yourself.
God, Karma and the universe will take care of you if you allow it and the person who decided to set you free. LOL… And, the made me feel really good after all, if you're depressed and living in chaos, it only makes the situation worse. A warm, clean, and cozy home is comforting when you feel those familiar doubts about yourself.
When you feel like anything but being social, make the effort, if only once in a while. I felt so many times like hiding away. But I started to see I actually was enjoying the "fun" with family and friends I dreaded! Most of all Good luck! What advice would you give to a woman who's newly divorced? I would tell that angel to never ever view herself as a failure. She has to wake up, take a deep breath and to never let anything bring her down. Single isn't a status. But it's a word that describes a person who is strong enough to live and enjoy life without depending on others.
Again God uses broken things beautifully, broken clouds pour rain, broken soil sets as fields, and broken seeds give life to new plants. So my friend, allow yourself to hope, to believe and to trust again. Don't let few bad memories stop you from having a good life. I am 63 and divorced. The hardest thing for me was repairing my self-esteem. I cut my hair, colored the gray he wanted me to keep, got rid of the bedroom set, threw out all the old cards and letters, gave all the photos of him to my grown children and rearranged the house and closet to suit me!
As scary as it is to be alone financially, emotionally it is freeing. I am planning a special trip, visiting with family and friends and had "sleep-overs" with my grandchildren we never had before. The hardest thing to do is to keep focused on what YOU want, and to avoid the "if only's". I suggest writing yourself a letter saying all the things you like about yourself and your strong points.
READ it often! God does not make mistakes! Keep yourself in good health -- and make sure to exercise and keep fit. Looking good is empowering. Get your finances in order, and do all you can to avoid getting into debt. Don't jump into another relationship!
Enjoy time with yourself and your children if you have some. Change your bedroom to make it your own space. Even little things like new linens or rearranging the furniture can make it feel like a new room. Don't forget to add scented oil or candles that smell just the way you like!
Travel, explore, cry, dance, shout, swear, vent, walk, read, sing, garden Go back to school, pursue another degree or credential or career, stay stimulated and stimulating. Make new friends with women who are single, independent, confident, and happy. Casually date at first, go slow, and DON'T rebound. You are not flawed or a failure because you are single. Cry if you want to. Cry if you need to. Cry when you can't do anything else. It's cleansing.Details About Maureen Waititu New Manz Revealed/Corazon Cry For Help/ Gloria Muliro Re Married
