I slept on the couch, laying in bed alone was too much for me to handle for months. I went out with friends, I took up activities I could do alone, running, photography, I worked a lot, mostly because of need though, it was hard financially at first.. We have been apart for over 3 years now, he is remarried, I am having a baby with someone else, and sometimes I still miss our relationship, well some aspects of it. It is hard to learn to be alone after being with one person for so long.
I made sure to keep busy. I made a list of all the things I had been meaning to do but hadn't gotten around to and chipped away at it. I also spent extra time with my children individually to make sure that they were healing and adjusting to the change.
