After your divorce, you may be tempted to eat a lot of comfort food. You may have a hard time sleeping. You may be tempted to drown your pain with alcohol or drugs. With help from friends, family, and professionals, you gradually move through your pain and anger.
You must face your pain if you want to heal. To release the pain requires you to find safe places and people to let go — people who are not going to try and fix you. It takes courage to face your internal pain. The good news is that the more you allow yourself to feel it, the less power it will have over you.
