Divorce helps to dissolve the bonds with your ex-partner, so start freshly, with a new beginning, which leads you to see other people socialize and that may lead you to a more fulfilling and loving person, who you believe is the best and most compatible person to you. This person can help you with love, can keep you happy, and solve your misery with the presence and patience.
Grief will pass
If you are in a position, you feel that, “you don’t want divorce, you need it”, but, are worried about ending a long-term relationship, it is understandable, it is pain but, being in a marriage where you are totally in distress and you are unhappy is much bigger and heart-aching pain. After a divorce, there is the pain of ending the long-term relationship which changes you into a different person, mostly, better and a meaningful one and sometime later, you start feeling this as small stuff and as people say, don’t sweat for small stuff. The socializing and chilling part of your post-divorce life eradicates the grief in you and as said, the grief will pass.
