Life after divorce: The story continues…

1. You are not for everyone.

2. Disclose quickly and early. Don’t be afraid to cut your losses.

3. Don’t close yourself to possibilities.

4. Speak openly about your struggles — it’s cathartic.

5. Build a narrative that is authentic and hopeful.

6. Embrace new possibilities, get clarity about what matters, and practice gratitude.
