Recently, I came across an article over at The Stir that highlighted some of the things one should replace post divorce. While some people are quick to find someone new in hopes to ease their pain, they will come to find out that perhaps rushing into a relationship isn’t the best way to deal with things. And perhaps given a little time they will come to see that being single isn’t all that bad. So while you resist the urge to immediately replace your ex, consider replacing some other items instead:
When a marriage or long-term relationship comes to an end, sometimes other relationships will also come to an end. Some people who were once your friends will decide that they have to choose sides. Some may not be supportive or understanding and, instead of making you feel better, simply make matters worse. It is important to surround yourself with people who care about you and impact your life in a positive manner.
For more things to replace after a breakup, visit the Stir. Do you believe in getting rid of things after a breakup? As the author of the article notes, sometimes when you get rid of tangible items that remind you of a relationship that has ended (and for the record you’re not a failure!) you are better able to look ahead to your future. And bring your shades because it’s bright.
