The New Year is all about resolutions. If you went through a divorce in 2015, there’s a good chance you’re expecting 2016 to be a little better and kinder to you. With that in mind, the Tulsa divorce law firm of Fry & Elder wishes to offer you a few resolution ideas for 2016 that will hopefully make your New Year a great one.
Put Yourself First
Whether this sounds easy or difficult, putting yourself first is an essential component in properly starting over. Bouncing back from a divorce isn’t easy, which is why it’s important that you remain confident, think about the future and not dwell on the past. The dawning of a New Year is as good a reminder of any that it’s time to move on.
Make New Friends and Try New Things
That cooking class you always wanted to take or that hobby you always wanted to try out, well, now’s your chance. Go ahead and try something new. Not only will it give you something to do, it will enhance your confidence and further prove to you that you are capable of moving on after your divorce. Another added bonus is that you’re probably going to meet a few new people along the way. And who knows, maybe you also make a couple of new friends.
Don’t Date Just for the Sake of Dating or to Avoid Being Alone
The last thing you want to do is get back into a relationship for the wrong reasons. Things that were a problem in your previous marriage likely will rear their head again in the new relationship, and you also likely will not be with a healthy and happy person. If you are afraid of being alone, chances are you will be with someone who also is afraid of being alone, which is not healthy for either party.
While your divorce and separation may have been a very difficult experience, there are almost certainly things in your life that are blessings – family, health, employment. Focus on those positives and then look for ways to incorporate more positives in your life.
