Some people have a difficult time recovering after a divorce. Post-divorce can be a troubling time for many people and answering the question of what do I like to do can be difficult. It’s best not to default to being a martyr. Best things to do are revisiting any or all of your old hobbies, try some new things and activities, life a healthy life, travel and even date. Always be kind to yourself and keep positive thoughts. Most importantly stick up for yourself, learn to say no and do what is best for you and no one else.
- When one’s identity has devolved to the point of existing to please a loved one, thereby eradicating one’s own personality, divorce can leave that person feeling like an empty shell.
- It’s important for the person who allowed their martyrdom to happen to acknowledge the fact, thereby shouldering a portion of the blame.
- To start to heal, it’s important to live a healthy lifestyle, revisit old hobbies and try out new activities.
“Only when we are 100 percent happy, healthy and reconnected with our inner self, will we feel whole enough to get back out there, and give someone else a chance to love us wholly”
