In Response to Loneliness
:

  So...how do you deal with the loneliness?


I know that I spend a good deal of time finding things "to
do" that will get me out of the house and keep my mind on
something else besides this awful divorce.  The trouble is that I
always have to come back home to this emptiness. 


I joined a faith-based divorce support group in January and found it
to be very helpful.  I made a few friends through that group and
enjoy socializing with them once a week.


And, I'm currently taking the Rebuilder's course.  It is run
nation-wide, so there could be one in your area.  We've met just
twice, but already I find it helpful.  And, again, I've met a
couple of ladies who I can tell are kindred spirits.


My sister and I have started a new business and that keeps me busy,
too.  We convert unwanted clothing into bags!  I do most of
the sewing and my sister does the hand-work.  We both do the
selling.  We haven't made much money so far, but we sure have had
fun and that's more important to me.


So, how about sharing some of the ways that you handle the loneliness!


Keep in Touch,


SallyJo
