Do you relate to any of these feelings after divorce?
“It’s not fair that my family has been torn apart!”
“This sucks! I hate having to start over at this stage of my life.”
“My ex seems to be doing just fine. Why am I having such a hard time of this?”
“Nobody else gets this. They haven’t had to deal with the stuff I’ve been dealt.”

Yet even while I worried that I wouldn’t feel happy again, I took steps towards beginning to feel better. Here are fifteen ways that you can crash your pity party and start to feel better.
