Take pride in being too strong to settle.
Be glad that you didn’t waste decades of your life being miserable because that’s what was expected of you.
You stood up for yourself and realized that you were in a bad situation; you decided you weren’t going to just settle into a life of stagnant unhappiness.
Good for you! Some people are so afraid of change that they’d rather stay in a crappy relationship than get out, but that’s a trap you’ve deftly avoided.
You can jump right back into the dating scene.
It may not feel like it, but you have tons of life ahead of you. Get back on the horse, so to speak and hop back into the dating game whenever you’re ready.
Take the time to reevaluate what you want in a relationship and remember there’s no need to rush into something serious.
Your ex taught you what you don’t want in a relationship, so now you know what to avoid. Don’t let your relationships become like a record stuck on repeat, it’s time to find a song that speaks to you.
Go out and flirt, get the attention that you deserve. Have some no strings attached flings if you need to, just do you until your heart is mended and you’re ready to commit again
While it definitely sucks, you’ve realized divorce isn’t that scary.
You begin to come to grips with the word divorce and realize that it isn’t a death sentence.
Whoever decided that divorce means you’re a failure is an idiot. Not everyone who comes into your life is meant to stay there, despite how you felt when you first met them.
You’re a strong, brave individual that doesn’t let your relationship or lack thereof define you. So shake off the haters’ judgmental glares, because it’s your life to live. You have no reason to apologize.
You’ve got so much ahead of you. Your life is truly a clean slate, ready to be filled up with whatever you decide to put on it.
