When I got divorced I had to take a plunge. I didn’t know if I would be happier alone. I believe I would, but I could be wrong.
For me it was worth taking the chance, for others it may not be worth it.
It takes courage to leave a marriage and it takes courage to stay in a marriage. So my top advice to everybody is to stay strong. Don’t let anybody make you feel bad about the choices you make.
The walk of shame is a walk of pride
I feel that people who critic others for giving up on a marriage, are jealous. They wish they were brave enough to follow their own dreams. Those dreams may not involve a divorce or a break-up, but they do have to be brave.
So when they see how brave you are, they simply can’t stand it.
Don’t let these people get you down! They may have some good points, so there is no harm in listening to them. But don’t let their words pull you down.
Gamble, but know when to fold
Anybody who have gambled on slot machines, played poker or gambled on other money games, knows that it is tempting to keep chasing the big win even when you have lost everything. However, a smart gambler knows when to cut their losses.
You have to be a smart gambler. Be enthusiastic, but realistic. If you want to start a new business, go for it but don’t borrow more than you can pay back. If you want to have a great apartment, make sure the loan is reasonable.
Leave without hard feelings
If you are leaving a relationship, try to make sure that you have dealt with any frustration, anger or other negative emotions before you end the relationship. If you have children, then you need to communicate with your partner at times without blowing up.
If you leave the relationship without hard feelings, then you will find that your new start will also be more smooth. If you still have feelings, even if it is anger, for your partner, then you will not be able to move on.
