Dear Nicola, I’ve recently separated from my wife and find it incredibly hard to cope with the situation. I’m so emotional it’s affecting my work where I can’t concentrate. I do have family and friends that have been trying to help me through this but there’s only so much they can do. I would be grateful if you could give me advice on how to cope. Daniel.
One of the hardest things to deal with when recovering from separation is the sad feeling that can leave you lost and upset. Some people take months to even years recovering but one thing is for sure the good old saying ‘time is a good healer’ although a cliché but is very true no matter how long you take. As time goes on you will be able to deal with being single again and move forward as life is too short to dwell on the past. Stay focused on finding new ways to meet new people and make new friends as usually this is a good base when finding a romantic partner.
