    Great advice! I too am in the same situation, when my wife left me it crushed me. But four months later I’m doing much better, thanks to a few of these tips and meditation and therapy. Thanks for posting!

    That’s some great advice. Most I’ve heard before, but all rang true with me today. And even tied in with a few posts I’ve been working on. I really like the thankful part. Important to think of the good stuff that happened, even when it’s hard to find.

    Actually I think writing helps you no matter what your write. If you need to be angry there’s a reason, it’s not let out yet. If you need to distract and write about fashion then that’s what helps you. I think if your mind strongly needs a particular outlet then do it! And one thing I would add: there is no timeline. You might be over it in a week. You might never get over it. But there are no shortcuts. It doesn’t help to pretend you’re somewhere you aren’t (except sometimes you have to to strangers of course). Take your time!

  4. This was an amazing post. I want to remember all your good advice. I especially like your idea for journalling. I do write down my feelings, but I like how you have divided into three parts like that, very constructive.

    Excellent advice! I did many of these, including yoga, finished paintings, scheduled crying sessions when the kids were gone, and lots of writing. Your writing steps are somewhat new. The venting was easy. Eventually, I got around to writing what I learned from my first marriage which of course helped me grow. My favorite suggestion is writing about hopes for the future. It took me a while to get around to that but it was very healing.
