By using the nine tips below, you can start feeling better and making your post-divorce life a little easier.
Dating in Our Thirties!
I am in my late 30s and I have noticed that dating has become a lot harder the older you get. I have joined and deleted a lot of dating sites, because it seems that either the guys just want to hook up or the ones that want to date don't really want to get to know me before they try to hook up with me. It has been a constant cycle of frustration for me on a personal level. I know how great of a person I am, but none of these guys seem to want to get to know a thing about me at all.
Love Can Hurt
I watched him kiss her. My heart fell as the reality sank in. He was done with me. I couldn't watch anymore. I turned around looking for Mila.
Second Chance Love
When my first marriage ended due to infidelity I promised myself that I would never give so much of myself to another man and under no circumstances ever marry again! The heartache associated with betrayal was so strong it felt as though I had experienced a death. It was painfully similar to the day my mother left this world and entered into her heavenly rest. I cried uncontrollably until my body jerked from each breath I took. During that time, I was thinking to myself, "How could I have been so stupid and love this man so much? He was my one. I'm done."
On the Path to Healing
Ever wondered how to get over a broken heart? Well, truth is, you can't really get over it straight away but there are a few ways that can lessen the aching painful feeling that you feel inside your heart.
To Any of You Struggling
I've been in so many relationships where I felt unheard, defeated, destroyed. Continuously, I was told I wasn't enough, I was too much, I was left alone to cry after a fight. I was never picked up after I had fallen. I was never told, no matter how much I protested, that I was beautiful everyday. I never felt like I was ever going to feel the love that I was dying to give to someone else. I always thought that this was how it was supposed to be. There wouldn't be a man who would love me better than the ones previous. I thought I would be stuck in this rut of unhappy, unsatisfactory, and one-sided relationships. I was envious of women who would tell me all about these amazing men that fell into their laps. I would dream of the day that I would find someone who would treat me as well as I was witnessing in my closest friends. I was a lost cause.
For People Like Me
This is for everyone and anyone who has found it difficult to show or even handle true emotion. People who have discovered that they are incapable of loving another being, or handling with care as they should. For people who have run away from love as if it were the devil himself.
Once a Cheater, Always a Cheater
How many of you have been cheated on? OK. Keep your hands raised. Now, how many of you have been a cheater? Alright. Keep your hands raised!
Single Life of a Confused Mom
I’m not one to complain about too much. I go to work, I come home, and I go to bed. Simple life, and simple woman. I have been told that I need to broaden my horizons, live a little, make some changes (picture me scathing over my sunglasses). I do not think you understand what I’m going through right now, dude. So to catch everyone up, here is a little peak into my life recently.
Bethnal Green Dream
Sat drinking wine in Hyde Park, watching you sticking a bit of grass between your two front teeth and I laughed, Frank Ocean on repeat.
Breakups Are Normal
I'm going to tell you something that doesn't get said very often these days, breakups are normal. Yes, you read that correctly, breakups are completely normal. There's no shame in going through a breakup. However, in a lot of places, it's still taboo to talk about heartbreak openly or to express how much pain or grief you're feeling at the end of a relationship. In some cases, it's even seen as a weakness.
