Q & A

I am single... and NOT loving it.  It drives me crazy that my single friends talk about how “great” and freeing it is, but the fact of the matter is, I’ve been divorced for a little over a year.. dated a very little, and I am still sooooo unhappy.  I miss my ex a lot.  The divorce was not my decision...  But, I WON‘T be in a relationship just to be in one... I want to be happy!   I don’t think I can adjust to this... especially with the holiday’s approaching.   It’s a lonely time of year... any advice?

    • This is the time to surround yourself with the people who love you the most. The friends and family who understand what you are going through and will just love you through it with no judging or fixing. It’s also the time to stay clear of scenarios, people and places that you know will bring you emotional pain. Wrap yourself with as much caring as you have available to you.

      I’m so sorry you are going through this. I understand that this is a very difficult time of year when you‘re hurting.

    • I agree-surround yourself with family and friends - the ones who love you the most.

    • I don’t have advice for you - because I completely feel your pain...  I’ll be going home for a few days to be with my parents, but will be missing the one I’m still in love with....

    • It is absolutely YOUR time. Have a heart to heart with yourself and discover all the great things about YOU. Get involved in groups...like this one...join a gym, take a lesson you’ve always wanted to do, spend a day at a spa. Being alone does not define lonely. Many individuals in relationships are very lonely. If you want to date, join a dating service, either local or internet based. Connect with your girlfriends...and meet new ones. Wake up every day and smile at the sunshine....  Be proactive.  

      You are responsible for your own happiness, not another individual.   I have a motto when I meet a man...He has to love himself and not need me; He has to love himself and completely want me; He has to wake up in the morning, smile at the new day first, then turn to me...

    • I remembered those lonely time
      Just make sure you keep yourself busy
      with friends and family
      as well as participate in group and charity
      so you will be occupied. Or even consider hosting an virtual party over here.

    • I feel your pain. I recently got seperated and it has been sad, there just isn’t any other way to word it. I do have good times but I have surrounded myself with family and friends,and facebook. I was a widow at a young age then I went wild . I got married again with in a year and a half, had two beautiful girls,only to get a divorce after five years of marriage. Then I got remarried to a man younger than me by seven years. Which brings me to the present. I am now seperated I still love him but I am not sure we can get it together even if we want to. So I do surround myself with great people and I do have great moments. I am also learning to love me for once and I am finally putting my girls first .It has been a roller coaster ride but not all bad. What I am trying to say is use this time to love your self then everything else will slide into place. I feel your pain!!!!
