How do you get over a divorce? How do you get back to normal? by Tony Garcia
Answer by Tony Garcia:
Look, let’s not kid ourselves—there is going to be crying and depression for a while. But this is not the time to turn to drugs or alcohol or overeating. Initially, keep your decisions small and simple; the worst thing you can do is to make major decisions while under duress.
You may also begin to store a lot of one-liners or otherwise salty bon mots for that day when you and your ex run into each other. Keep them where they ruminate—in your head. Resist the temptation for revenge; it only makes matters worse and prolongs the pain.
After a while, get back to meeting people—whether through friends, on the job or, yes, even through a dating website. You can’t start over unless you are actually trying to do so.
Lastly, remember you are worth something to yourself and to someone else. Keep your heart and mind open to meeting someone who appreciates you.
I wish you the best.
