How to Turn the Negative Aspects of Divorce into Positives

Diamond-Lighthouse-selling-heart-beachDealing with the after effects of divorce can be frustrating, depressing and flat out maddening.  However, acclimating to your newfound singleness can eventually be quite liberating.  Here are a few tips on how to turn that frown upside down and embrace your newly liberated life as a single dynamo!

the bad:

You suddenly find yourself alone.

turned good:

You now have TIME to explore You.  Being married to someone saps a lot of your energy (even for those who felt they were in a very passive relationship).  Your new solo time will let you explore all of the aspects of your personality that you had been either neglecting or weren’t even fully aware of.  Make a list of everything you ever wanted to do and just do it.

the bad:

Certain objects remind you of your ex.

turned good:

Shopping Spree!  Now more than ever is the time to ditch your old clothes, furniture and other potentially ex-related-stuff and update your wardrobe/home decor.  Yes, times may be tough financially, but you can actually sell a lot of your old clothes and furniture to second hand stores such as Buffalo Exchange and online at ThethriftShopper.com.  ‘Out with the old, in with the new’ has never been more applicable.

the bad:

Feeling like you will never find your soulmate.

turned good:

Date like crazy.  Ever wondered what it would be like to samba the night away with that Capoeira instructor or go desert camping with that roller derby spokesmodel?  Now’s your chance to drop all the preconceived notions of who you should be with and just have some fun.  Dating someone out of the normal parameters of what you consider “your type” can be not only exciting, but you may find that the type of people who actually make you happy are  vastly different than the ones you’ve always gravitated to.

the bad:

You don’t know what to tell the kids (if you indeed have them).

turned good:

You now have a golden opportunity to really express to them how much you love them.  This is a very trying time for everyone involved, but you can actually strengthen the bond you have with your children.  Fully devote your attention to them during the initial transitional period and let them know how valuable and special they are to you.  Read: spoil them rotten.  No child can resist this albeit blatant form of affection.

the bad:

You’re not sure what to do with your engagement/wedding rings.

turned good:

You simply are not going to wear these again, and much like your old clothes and furniture, you can turn these into cash.  The huge difference is that you can turn these into a LOT of cash.  Selling at a pawn shop or to a jeweler will definitely leave you befuddled and disappointed; but selling your diamonds with Diamond Lighthouse, the only name in after market diamond sales, will leave you with the maximum amount of money possible and a big smile on your face.  Diamond Lighthouse doesn’t buy diamonds, we help you sell them to an elite, extensive network of professional diamond buyers.  We take a commission from the sale, so the more you make, the more we make.  It’s a partnership that is mutually beneficial and will stand the test of time.  Let us help you move on, and have plenty of cash to treat your freshly liberated self.
