The sense of helplessness and numbness that is common the first year, are signs of an ending and also a new beginning.
You are experiencing the end of your married life and the couple world, to begin your life as a “single”.
Fortunately, there is an internal drive inside of us that protects us from self-destruction as we travel this new path.
We can’t exist for long on hopelessness, despair, self-isolation or addictive habits. The search for a new life begins when your driven towards self-renewal. Enough is enough! When you become aware of your life and want to change it, then you have started to heal.
When you get annoyed with TV, being your consistent companion and quite simply bored with being bored; that’s good, because your coming out of the dark and starting to look for the light.
It is then that the urge to meet new people and engage in new activities arises, like spring after a long hard winter.
