Or just the opposite of what kleonrose said. Find new things that you're interested in. Be more adventurous, come out of your shell a little more. Try to be an independent person again, which can be a very difficult thing to do, coming out of a marriage where you always had someone to rely on. Doing these things will make you become a stronger person.

Facing the fact that your marriage is over is devastating. It destroys your self-confidence, leaving you feeling scared, alone and a failure. Rebuilding your life is going to take time. Don´t run into another relationship because you are feeling vulnerable. See it as a time to find yourself again, to be kind to yourself. Eat healthy food, exercise as it helps you mentally as well as physically, and focus on looking after yourself for a while, until you feel whole again. It is frightening to suddenly have to find out who you are without being part of a couple. But if you perservere, you will find that you are stronger and happier than ever before.

It may be appropriate to indulge in relationships after divorce if you have engaged in robust self-care following the divorce. Examples of robust self-care include counseling, exercise, prayer, healthy eating, meditation, and the like. Talk to counselors and trusted companions about your emotional health and readiness for post-divorce relationships. Take your time in committing to a long-term relationship. Give your soul time to grieve the losses of previous relationships before moving on to something new.

The end of a marriage does not have to mean the end of your life. It is definitely an emotional upheaval to have to experience a divorce, and it might take some time to recover from the pain. During that time, it might be beneficial to pick up some interesting hobbies to help you pass the time and take your mind off the past. You have to ensure however, not to partake in any activities or behaviour that might damage your emotional well-being during this stage. Take it easy, stop to see the roses in life, and one day you might find renewed energy to breeze through life.

After divorce it can take quite some time to feel whole again. If you gave a lot into your marriage and sacrificed parts of yourself it can especially cause some challenges to get back on track. It is possible though. It can help to find something bigger than yourself to give yourself to through time and energy. Find other people in your life that you can build true and honest relationships with or if you already have them build on them and let them flourish. Surround yourself with those that are positive and fill you up with love.

I went through a divorce and I know how you feel. After getting used to a routine or having a partner for years, it can be diificult to venture out into the world on your own. But I would like to say that it is definitely possible. Get out there and live your life to the fullest, and enjoy life as a singleton, because it can be liberating in some ways as compared to being married.
