Divorced Dad Help. 

Don't Hate The Ex!

To truly hate someone, you must at one time, have truly loved someone. If you as a father are angry, and consumed with hating your ex, you will never be able to truly enjoy your own life. Not only will you be miserable, but also your judgment regarding the children will be clouded. Letting the ill feelings go is just as important as letting the fond memories go. For some of you struggling to let go, here are some tips:

Laugh at something. Not only will it burn 1.3 calories a minute, but it helps relieve emotional stresses, and exercises your abdominal and back muscles.

 

Talk with family, friends, coworkers. Venting is amazing therapy. And, they are the only ones to be willing to even listen to these kinds of problems. Talking to these same people will also help you understand more about the processes, as many people have already been through divorce. When talking to some of my friends, I didn’t even know many of them were on their second spouses, and I learned many things about the divorce process I had not previously known.

Get out and socialize as soon as possible. You need to date and socialize to keep your sanity, and to give the kids the impression that you are ok. The children see mom with a new man, and also need to see dad with a new woman. To them, being attached is “normal”.

Let them see you having fun with life, and they will follow in your footsteps.

Do something FUN. Join a golf league, health club, join some meet up groups, or go to church.

 

Start a new hobby, or attend some classes. There are classes you can take in almost anything.

Decorate your place. Buy some plants. Buy pictures, add a little color. Make new friends.

Try to get out there and date. There is no better feeling than replacing the old one with a new one.

Pamper yourself. Perhaps a massage?

Buy something you have wanted to get for a while but wouldn’t pull the trigger.

Enjoy some of the alone, quiet times.

Take care of yourself, body and mind. You are of no use to your children if you are not healthy in all aspects of life.

Go to church and reconnect  with God.

Do not rush into another relationship. Take time to heal. If you rush, your new relationship will fail. There is an 80% divorce rate for second marriages.

Stop thinking about going back to her. Every time you do, punch yourself in the face until the desire is gone.

Give yourself time to adjust. Each day gets better. The first year is the hardest. Take your time.

Our articles are created with the hope of assisting fathers, children, and families through these trying, extremely difficult times of separation and divorce. Through the Internet we hope to share our knowledge and empower fathers at the times when they feel the most lost and hopeless. I wish my fellow single fathers the best of luck and hope we can all survive the bitterness and pain of divorce, and keep our children happy and safe.

Finally - GOOD LUCK!

PLEASE, try to remain amicable.  It is really in everyone's best interests.  The lawyers get all the money when people play games.  Good luck.

"I thought I was really romantic but my girlfriend told me I needed a little help :(.

Upon recommendation from a friend I got "The Magic Of Making Up" and while some of the ideas weren't us (maybe 20%) there were a lot that I have been able to use.

After reading it I have to admit that I guess I am not nearly as romantic as I thought.  My hat's off to this information."

"I am happy to report that my Ex and I are now happily back together.  I have to say it was effortlessly done!  I thank you for all of your great information!"
