Even the most beautiful love stories sometimes have an end. Divorce has become almost commonplace since 1 couple out of 3 decides to end their marriage. But it remains a difficult experience, even traumatic, whether you are at the origin of this decision or if you are subjected to the situation. How to get back on your feet and get past this particularly difficult moment?
Although it has become a frequent act in our society, divorce remains a painful ordeal. When we suffer the situation, we take this rupture in the face without being able to change the situation. Years of love, projects, and life together collapse. One must then learn or relearn to live alone. You feel like you no longer have any interest or value and your self-esteem takes a hit. But contrary to what one may believe, for the people who are at the origin of the separation, it is not easy either. Most of the time, they are also affected and the divorce can bring a feeling of guilt. Indeed, all eyes are focused on the suffering of the person who is “suffering” the separation.
To turn the page and overcome a divorce, you will have to be patient and do a lot of work on yourself. Because yes, it is you and only you!
You have to get it into your head that the end of your marriage does not necessarily mean failure. Take it as an experience that will make you stronger and make you progress. Take the time to “mourn”. You must release your emotions, let off steam, whether through sports, writing or any other activity that allows you to express yourself. To overcome a divorce is not that difficult.
If possible, cut ties with your ex. Delete him from social networks, get rid of all photos or anything else that reminds you of him. Obviously, if you have children, it is essential to keep a cordial relationship and to be able to talk when necessary.
Take the opportunity to take stock of your love life, try to understand the reasons for your divorce, take stock and try to see what went wrong. This will allow you to avoid making the same mistakes in your future relationships. In addition, it is important to avoid closing yourself up and going around in circles alone with your worries. This will not help matters, quite the contrary! Take time to relax, take care of yourself, see your friends… in short, don’t neglect your social life.
As for the question of meeting new people, take your time, don’t rush to meet the first person you meet and be sure that you are really ready to move on to something else at the risk of a series of failures.
