We have a few posters on here that are going through a divorce or a separation. You may know who they are, you may not. In order to respect their privacy I will not be naming them in this thread.
Do you have advice to give them? Have you been through this yourself? What helped you/hurt you? Did you have a book/song/website/inspirational quote that kept you going?
Could you share in this thread what helped you make your way back to a happy place.
For me I had the hope (and later belief) that I would emerge as a stronger and better person. I knew that I needed to be true to myself in order to live a fullfilled and happy life. Music helped me a lot, it filled my mind on the days I didn't want to think and gave me something to concentrate on at night so I could sleep.
I also though that this website would help, a divorce is a lot like a death, you grieve for what you had and what you have lost.
The page on hope is very encouraging.
