Continued from Part 1
- Stop analyzing the divorce. Leave the past where it belongs – in the past. It can get very exhausting and depressing to keep going over the relationship to find out where it went wrong. Your time is more valuable than that.
- Stop talking about your ex to anyone that will listen, or who you think is listening. By now it’s easy to assume that your friends don’t want to meet your for a beer and hear about how much you miss your ex every time. Instead of talking about yourself, ask how you friend is and about their life.
- Stop swearing off marriage/dating. Open your mind to infinite possibilities.
- Let go of the anger. If you keep hold of all of the anger and resentment you may have toward your ex-spouse, you’ll never be happy. They likely don’t even think about it as much as you do, so you should eliminate the anger from your life as well.
- Enjoy the alone time. At first it may have been scary and lonely, but learn to cherish the moments you have to do things for yourself. Not having someone around all the time can leave room for YOU – take a nice hike by yourself and enjoy the quiet time, or any other activity that you can do alone and reflect on yourself and how you want the year to go.
