Divorce is a painful process which might surprise some, considering that misery is usually the precursor to separation. But divorce takes a toll on one’s self esteem and faith in others as well. One requirement to regain self love after a hurtful or bitter divorce is the ability to change. Know that you will have to become a different person in order to face the challenge of being single again, seeing previously shared friends, dealing with family who think they can interfere. Courage will be necessary but a drastic life situation can lead to a new inner strength.
