Ending a marriage can take a heavy toll on a person and moving forward in the aftermath can be a challenge. You might feel depressed, relieved, upset, heartbroken, or everything all at once. We compiled a list of tips that will help you move forward and heal, so you can enjoy this new chapter in your life.
Caring for Yourself in the Aftermath
The first step in moving forward after a divorce is healing your heart. Consider speaking to a therapist or confiding in a trusted friend or family member about your feelings. Even if you were the one who wanted the divorce, you likely have a lot to unpack and will need a little help to break it down, so do not be afraid to reach out. It may be tempting to isolate yourself, but your friends and family want to be there for you, and you will need the support to move forward.
It is also important to care for yourself. The better you care for your health and overall wellbeing, the easier the healing process will be, so try to remain active, get enough rest, and maintain a healthy diet. If there were any hobbies you gave up during your marriage or something you always wanted to try, consider diving back into it or finding something new.
More than anything, it is essential to be kind to yourself. It will not do you any good to beat yourself up over any mistakes you might have made that contributed to the divorce. Of course, it is necessary and healthy to understand your missteps to avoid repeating them with a future partner, but that does not mean you should fixate on them. The sooner you forgive yourself, the sooner you can embark on a new relationship.
