Going through a divorce is devastating and it takes time to heal. In the weeks, months, and years following the divorce, it is not uncommon for you to experience intense levels of stress, fear, anger, and sadness. Even with the emotional turmoil that divorce can bring, it is possible to come out the other side a strong and confident person, ready to take on the dating world.
In many married scenarios a couple, who has been unhappy for a long time, may take up counseling. When it doesn’t work, they might simply find ways to co-exist together (sometimes for years). Maybe they are not sure of how to get out of the marriage. This marriage is likely lacking all affection, intimacy, and communication.
Despite all efforts to rekindle what was lost, the marriage is over. When the couple finally does divorce, both individuals have been out of the dating game for so long that they may not even remember what romance and love feels like.
The gift of divorce is the feeling that you get when you realize that you are worthy of love and are desirable to others. When you finally enter the dating world, you might not remember exactly how to date or how to express your attraction to someone. You also might not know exactly how to determine if someone interested in dating you.
All of these things will come back to you, and you will eventually find yourself thriving in your post-divorce world.
