Being divorced is no longer taboo, and roughly half of all marriages end up in divorce, but those facts don’t help if you’re miserable. Divorce can do a real number on your self-esteem, but you don’t have to let that happen. The tips below offer several proven methods of lifting yourself out of your gloom and helping you move forward to the next phase of your life.

  • Practice Gratitude – It’s easy to feel sorry for yourself and think about all of the things that you’ve lost. It is harder, but infinitely more rewarding, to spend some time thinking about all of the good things that you still have in your life and to be consciously grateful for them. There are many studies that show that keeping a gratitude journal can make a significant difference in the quality of your life and help you heal.
  • Seek and Accept Help – Going through a divorce is a hard thing, and attempting to do it without help is a mistake. There is no reason to turn down offers of comfort or assistance from friends and family – they are called a support system for a reason. Perhaps even more importantly, seek professional help from a therapist who can help you to understand what happened in your marriage and to feel better about yourself and your future.
  • Take Advantage of How Life Has Improved – No matter how painful your divorce may have been or how happy you thought your marriage was, there are likely things that you wanted to do but couldn’t. Whether you wanted to take a vacation but your spouse wouldn’t take off work or you wanted to entertain but your partner hated having people over, you are now free to do the things that didn’t fit before. Go ahead and do them!
  • Get Some Exercise – Much like the old adage about an apple a day, working out is good for you. In fact, it is better, because it is not only good for your body but for your soul as well. You don’t have to run a marathon to get the benefits of exercise. Just getting out and taking a walk in nature will make you feel better.
