How to cope with divorce and loneliness?

Answers (2)

Virtually everyone who has endured a divorce wrestles with loneliness. A few good ways to combat loneliness include:

-              Joining an art class, an exercise class, or a class at your local community college.

-              Becoming a volunteer for a cause you believe in can provide you with purpose and the same benefits as taking a class like meeting others, being part of a group, and creating new experiences.

-              Joining a support group

-              Bringing a pet into your home.

It has not been easy as I am quite introverted by nature. I have had to push myself to attend functions or outings I may not have wanted to go to. I also volunteered at an animal charity shop, which has given me the feeling that I am doing something useful, and has also meant that I have met new, like-minded people. I cleared out my home, getting rid of clutter and things that held too many hurtful memories. And now, after 7 years, I am finally at the stage where I have hung up family photos including ones with my ex-husband in them, and my life is full and better than it has ever been before.
