Still mourning your husband’s departure? Think on the bright side — his exit may, in fact, have been a good thing. The following are just a few reasons why you should smile and be thankful for your newly single life:
- You can relearn who you are and reclaim your identity.
Far too many spouses lose their personal identity while married. Now that your husband has left, you can finally get reacquainted with yourself. You may find that you like yourself far better as a divorced woman than as a married woman lacking her own identity.
- You can throw yourself into your career with new vigor.
Did your ex prevent you from pursuing your true passion? Now, you can do what you want with your career, free of guilt and time constraints. Take on more hours or pursue a completely new career path — it’s all up to you.
- The potential for fewer parenting disputes.
Divorce can escalate parenting disputes, but if you’re granted sole custody, you may actually have more say over parenting issues — particularly the day-to-day things that once caused you stress.
- You can meet the right person.
Your ex was not Mr. Right, but now, you have the opportunity to meet the perfect guy. The dating market may be a lot different now than it was when you first got hitched, but thanks to online dating, you have a clear path to meeting your true soul mate.
- You will become a stronger, more resilient person.
Divorce is tough, but you’ll come out a stronger person. Having dealt with the complexities of divorce, future challenges will seem easier to handle.
- You have full say over your future.
Marriage is all about compromise, but as a divorced woman, your main compromises involve visitation and child support. For everything else, it’s all about what you want. You can choose where you want to go on vacation, how you want to spend your spare cash, and even what you watch on television each evening.
The right outlook can make all the difference as you embark on your exciting post-divorce life. Think positive and start fresh by pursuing opportunities that were not available while you were stuck in an unhappy marriage.
