During divorce, you may have to find some new friends. Friends who understand. They won’t care how much you talk about your divorce. You won’t need that forever, but you do early on.
“See where you could use some more friends, and then find some!” SARK, author, writer, creative guru
Some R.A.D.I.C.A.L. Women I know are getting together to enjoy some fellowship, friendship and fun this weekend. They are all going through the trauma of midlife divorce. But they have decided that they will not let it defeat them. They are sharing ideas and experiences and laughs and just relaxing together. Hopefully you can start or find a group like that. (Go to the www.MDRcommunity.com site and join.) Connecting with other women going through this journey is so important. It helps us see that we are not alone. It helps us see that other wasbands are doing things just as crazy as ours. It helps us see that other women have done ridiculous things like we have. It’s that sharing that makes the healing go faster. And it makes us feel not so isolated and not so hopeless.For example another group of women decided to do three healthy things for themselves. It’s just another way to help each other move forward. Find other women who are going through what you are and connect with them! Even if it’s just one or two. You will gain strength and power and reassurance from each other. Remember to laugh a lot. It’s healing!
“My dear, dear friends, if God loved us like this, we certainly ought to love each other. No one has seen God, ever. But if we love one another, God dwells deeply within us, and his love becomes complete in us –perfect love!” I John 4:10-11 (The Message)
