Dear all

I separated From my husband Of five years in the new year. Does anyone have any tips or advice on what to do now? WE were together for 12 years and met when I was 21 so I don’t really know who I am without him.

Thank you

Take your time. Be kind to yourself. And talk to anyone who will listen.
Get professional help if you think it will help.
Try and eat well and exercise if that's your thing.
Lean on friends and family for support. They want to help and it takes as long as it takes.
Don't do anything you are t happy with. X

I'm assuming you have no children together as I'm sure you would have mentioned them.

You do polite and civilised 'yes I'm very well how are you' terribly English conversation. And meanwhile all the important stuff about earnings, mortgage contributions etc stays firmly in hands of solicitors.

And meanwhile you get on with your new life. It may be worth changing your log-in names and passwords on things like AirBNB and/or other travel sites, and indeed here on MN. In fact pretty well everywhere.
