One woman's positive outlook after divorce

Divorce at any age can be devastating, but it can be particularly difficult for those that have been married for a long time. There are a lot of memories associated with the marriage and it can be hard to let go of them and move forward. Recently, an article detailed how a 56-year-old woman struggled to move forward when she divorced her husband of nearly 26 years.

The woman dealt with a lot of emotions as she worked toward understanding her new single life. She got rid of things that reminded her of her ex-husband, got her own home and changed her wardrobe. She decided to start doing the things she loved - those things she put on the back burner in order to concentrate on the needs of her family.

At her age, she had a hard time getting back into the workforce, noting that she regrets that she concentrated on her husband's career instead of her own. As she pointed out, unlike those who divorce in their 30s and 40s, she does not have the "luxury of time."

She finally started making time for herself and the things that she needed. Although sadness often overtook her, she learned to look on the bright side and realize the benefits of divorce.

This positive outlook led her to realize that divorce can lead to a happily ever after. For her, that meant having room to grow. The divorce did not mean it was the end of life as she knew it. Instead, it was something that gave her room for new happiness.
