5 Steps: How To Move On After Divorce

Updated: May 2


This is the #1 question I’m asked as a divorce recovery coach: How do I forget about my ex and move on? It’s a simple question. The answer is simple, too…it’s just not easy.


Here's how:


1. Choose to be grateful and look for silver linings always. This is much more manageable than trying to choose to be happy. You can’t change the situation, you can only change your mind.


2. Allow yourself time and space to grieve…a divorce is a tremendous loss…be patient with yourself. You can’t go around it, you have to go through it.


3. Accept the end of your marriage…it has happened…you cannot change it or fix it…accept that you may never get an apology and you may never know why it ended


4. Reconnect with yourself and keep a routine. Focus your energy on yourself and on the positive relationships and aspects in your life.


5. Love yourself the way you wanted your ex to love you. Create positive experiences for yourself (fix a cup of hot tea, have snuggly play-time with a pet, take a long shower, read a new novel, take a hike, watch an old favorite movie, etc)
