Divorces are a new reality. We can choose not to talk about it but the elephant in the room is too big to be pushed under the carpet anymore.
Each one of us knows someone going through a divorce and this post may change their lives if they are struggling to deal with the ever-so-profound LONELINESS that comes with relationship loss/ divorce
Here are 7 ways to deal with it:
✅1. Acknowledge and Accept Emotions: Begin by recognizing and accepting the feelings of loneliness that arise during divorce. Understand that it's a natural response to the significant life changes.😇
✅2. Build a Support System: Cultivate a network of friends, family, therapists, mentors, or support groups. Sharing your emotions with others provides an outlet for expression and can help alleviate the burden of loneliness.😇
✅3. Invest in Self-Care: Prioritize self-care activities that bring joy and fulfillment. This could include hobbies, exercise, or any activities that contribute positively to your well-being.😇
✅4. Set Personal Goals: Establish achievable personal goals that align with your interests and aspirations. Focusing on self-improvement provides a sense of purpose and helps counteract loneliness.😇
✅5. Explore New Social Opportunities: Attend social events, classes, or group activities to meet new people and expand your social circle. Engaging in shared interests can foster connections and combat feelings of isolation.😇
✅6. Seek Professional Support: Consider therapy or counseling to navigate the emotional challenges of divorce. A Divorce Recovery Coach who specializes in handling divorce matters can offer guidance, coping strategies, emotional & motivational support, and a safe space to discuss your feelings of loneliness.😇
✅7. Rediscover Independence: Embrace and enjoy your own company. Use this time to rediscover your interests, strengths, and passions. Building a fulfilling independent life can be empowering and reduce the impact of loneliness.😇
💡Remember this HEALING journey is from “feeling lonely” to “being in solitude/ peace with self”. A second marriage or relationship may not be the cure for the first failed marriage/ relationship. 💡💡
Healing oneself ☀️☀️ first before proceeding to the second innings is wisdom. Otherwise, you may hurt somewhere else and bleed somewhere else, making that relationship also equally sour. Ans second relationship loss would make your grief and belief stronger against relationships.
Does that make sense?💡💡
If yes, we can talk.
