What used to make you happy? I know some divorced mums who play netball. I do think that physical activity is the best way forward at the start though since it picks your mood up too. Gym? Run? Swim?
Do you work for a big firm? Do they have any social/leisure activities?
6 years, we did move but it was because I had a new job. Financially it’s not great atm and the only word I can use to explain it is empty. Confidence is all time low and “having fun” seems impossible
How long were you married for? Did you move away from your friends? Recently separated myself (3 months) and I am making plans- sailing club and sports based mainly. I too feel I lost my hobbies and interests during a 10 year relationship. Luckily for me I ramped up contact with friends towards the last year when I think I subconsciously knew he was checking out of the relationship.
Don’t think the details are important as to why we separated, thought I will say it wasn’t my choice.
I’m trying to pick myself up from the separation but I feel like I’ve put soo much of myself into the marriage I’ve lost who I am as an individual. I don’t know what to do through the day when I’m not working, I find it hard to socialise I’ve not been in contact with my friend base really since I was married maybe even before. The relationship was EVERYTHING to me and I now think I was wrong to let myself get so attached to someone.. I really don’t know what to do! I have no hobbies.. I’m not a music person my interests are sporadic and I feel like a shell of a person that is still attached to the person I dreamed of being with until I die. /sigh
