Getting Over Divorce For Men

People may think that men are tougher than women but when it comes to feelings but this is not so true. Getting over divorce for men is just as hard as it is for women. Men tend to hide their feelings and hold their hurt inside. But the feelings are still real and painful.

You may show your feelings in private when nobody else can see them trying to fool family and friends. Even if you succeed in hiding your feeling from family and friends you can not fool yourself. Your feelings are real and you need to be able to deal with them and start to move on.

You may not be as sneaky as you think. If you are not leaving your house or you are not socializing like you used to then they probably know that something is wrong with you.

Moving On

Getting Over A Divorce For Men

If you have been staying at home and not going out then it is time to try to find a happy place inside of you. This does not mean that you go out and hook up with somebody.

  1. Get up and take a shower and shave.
  2. Go out and get a haircut and something new such as new clothes or new shoes.
  3. Call a friend and go out for a couple of hours.
  4. Join a gym if you have some weight to lose.

Think back to life before your wife. What are some of the things that you used to do before her that you enjoyed. Things that she maybe did not like you to do after you were married.

Go do some of those things again. Do things that make you happy. I do not mean go on a drinking frenzy either. Do fun things that you once enjoyed again.

The point is you have to do something to help yourself. If you start living your life again you will find happy memories that do not include your ex.
