There is happiness after divorce
Divorce is hard, there is no denying that.
And, you may feel that there is no light at the end of the tunnel.
But, there is happiness after divorce. You have to be open to it.
A recent survey conducted by Style suggests there is a new breed of happy divorcees. Women who are happier after divorce. Even more than that, they are happy to be single.
“As a divorce lawyer, many of my clients report that friends and family tell them to find happiness in another relationship. They suggest that to deal with the pain of divorce they should seek out comfort in the arms of someone else.”
“What in fact is now happening is people are creating their own happiness after divorce. They are enjoying independence. They are enjoying being single.”

5 Tips to help find happiness after divorce
- Seek help for emotional trauma
Divorce is painful and emotional. You will feel many emotions. Some may be harder to deal with.
When people seek help from therapists, friends and family, they heal quicker.
- Create a support network
Surround yourself with supportive family and friends. Rely on them and let them take care of you, laugh with you and cry with you. You don’t have to go it alone.
- Focus on you
Practice self-care. Eat well and exercise to decrease depression, decrease illness and counter low self-esteem. Do things that make you happy, be it laying in a hot bath for an hour, reading, or crafting. Do things that are good for your soul.
- Try something new
Doing new things is good for your soul. It enriches your life and gives you some sense of hope. Learn a new skill, jump out of an aeroplane, and go on a last minute weekend break with a friend.
- Be your own friend
You need to be comfortable in your own skin. Enjoy time on your own. Spending time alone is not a negative thing. It gives you time to do the things you enjoy, time to reflect and time to make plans. Enjoy the quiet.
Your divorce experience and journey will be unique to you and your family.
