After a Separation or Divorce it's not uncommon for many to withdraw into a period of isolation and solitude for quite some time, if not for the remainder of their days, as they understandably don't feel very strong and certainly don't want to feel the pain of getting hurt again.
However, it is desirable and advisable if you can get back out into the world of life as there is so much on offer, plus chances are you won't ever be hurt again, well most likely not as bad as you may have been this time.
Love is grand and so is life and baby steps are the key.
Living a life of loneliness is a death in itself and need not ever be the case.
The hurt and pain from the loss of loved ones, the nasty and unnecessary allegations that were flung at you, your failed expectations of yourself, a partner, a system and of people in general can all leave you feeling a bit low for some time, no doubt leaving scars and pain running deep. However as they say, nothing beats getting over an old love like finding a new and improved love, and I don't necessarily mean a new partner, although I'm sure that will inevitably come too.
There are many things to love and forms in which to show it, however the first step is to fix yourself up and venture back out into the playground of life. At the end of the day you have to push on and push forward, as hard as it may sound whilst you are reading this, especially if you are in a bad place.
It will take some risk when your ready but hey, hasn't life always been a risk? What's different now? As you know there are no guarantees in life, save the one and only guarantee that if you don't try something new, you will never ever know. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
So, are you prepared to take a risk?
