After your marriage ends, there are a lot of significant changes to adapt
to, whether they are financial, physical, emotional, or social. Most divorcing
couples are so focused on getting out of their current situation, they
don’t realize the aftermath can be difficult to cope with. While
you once spent your weekends with your children and spouse, you are now
finding yourself home alone with nothing to do, nowhere to go. This realization
can be overwhelmingly lonely.
Here are our tips on rebuilding your social life following divorce:
- Lean on your closest friends. Their support and comfort will help you through
some incredibly difficult times, which is why it is important you don’t
isolate yourself from people who have been there for you before, during,
and after your marriage.
- Join a divorce support group, and you will find likeminded people who are
seeking the same kind of social comfort you are. This is a great way to
nurture new relationships and meet people who understand the situation
you are in.
- Try volunteering, as it is a wonderful way to network with people while
giving back to your community.
- Try a few new hobbies, whether it be learning a new skill or taking up
a new activity such as yoga, cooking classes, learning a new language,
etc. Not only will you expand your circle socially, you’ll be proud
that you’ve taken your newfound free time to improve yourself overall.
