Finding support in others during a divorce is an important aspect of the healing process. It may seem tempting to spend time alone, locked away from the world, but it can make this time more difficult and painful. Distractions and knowing that there are people who have your back can help you find purpose and happiness during a sad time.
Reach out to friends and family who you trust, including those who have been through this experience themselves. They may be able to give you tips on how to proceed or assure you that there is hope for the future. Finding people who value you and energize you may be hard, especially if you have lost touch with some, but there are most likely some that are still interested in being part of your life. You want to make sure you trust these people because you want to get through this time without feeling judged or criticized.
This also may be a great time to seek new friendships. Joining various networking activities such as a book club, cooking classes, a gym, or maybe a church can lead to finding people who may be in similar situations. There are people looking for new friends like you, so putting yourself out there can help you connect with new people.
