Going through a separation isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s hard. It’s sad. It’s not easy. But with some time and patience? It does get better. If you’re feeling discouraged because you aren’t where you think you should be – be patient.
Give yourself time to heal.
Give yourself the time you need to get counselling and process how and why your relationship ended.
Give yourself time to adjust to a new routine, and maybe a new place to live.
Give yourself time to figure out a new schedule with your kids.
And be patient with yourself when you mess up, because that’s bound to happen too.
