After Divorce: From Surviving to Thriving

9 Responses

  1. Soon I will cross that bridge. In a month or so she is moving much will change BUT I know I will do more than just survive or “get by.” I intend to thrive, just like you said, and be happy. Still there are those steps I have to take, allow the process to take place.

    I appreciate your blog.

    I love this, smart and practical. I remember going through the surviving parts, but didn’t realize it. The people who helped me did though, and didn’t let me underestimate how much I needed to heal.

    I’m still working on surviving, wrapping that up, and moving into thriving, re-discovering myself, scary and rewarding.

    Thank you for this post.

    • Friends and family are often key to that early survival – we usually aren’t able to recognize and provide all that we need at that point. Glad you had support and happy to hear you’re moving forward!

  3. I am so sorry your marriage came to end that way, know that he is a coward and that you are brave and the two do not mix. I hope to read many more happy posts of thriving from you. Personally, I am still just surviving and it is nice to know someone ahead of me is on her way to “better” and not broken.
