Keep telling yourself how much you love yourself every day and do things that make you happy. Eat your favorite foods, pamper yourself at a spa and shower yourself with love, positive vibes, and strong energy.

Start working if you weren’t working during the marriage then get a job that you love or that you’re qualified for as soon as possible to get your mind off the divorce. Working and earning your own money will give you a sense of independence emotionally and financially and will give you reassurance that you don’t need a spouse to rely on for anything.
