It Has Been Nice Making Changes in My Life

Going through a divorce was one of the toughest things that I have ever gone through. I know that other people go through far tougher things, though. For example, I do still have my health, and I am grateful for that. But divorce was my first initiation into the world of rough things, so it was a big deal. But I have been slowly getting on my feet again. I took two painting classes, I joined a singles group, I bought sex toys for the fun of it, and I even joined a hiking group.

I am not looking to start dating any time soon. I know that a lot of people rush out to start dating right away when they leave a relationship. But I have learned by watching other people who jump into yet a new relationship right away, that it is a good thing to take your time. I want to gather my bearings and think about where I am headed in life first. I want to figure myself out much more thoroughly first. When you are in a relationship with someone, you must spend time focusing on that other person, which does not leave much time for introspection. This is very much true in the beginning of a new relationship where you need to focus more on that person that you will further down the road when you are more comfortable and settled.

I am meeting a lot of new people thanks to the activities that I have been partaking in. When I was married, I really did not have the freedom to go out and meet new people because I was busy cooking dinner for the two of us, cleaning up his messes and things like that. But I am really enjoying being on my own and being able to make my own decisions!
