Yes. I went through a divorce and I changed everything. I completely reinvented myself, and I became much more honest about what I wanted in my life.
It doesn't have to take long. When you're ready for change, you change. I changed everything in three months... Well, except my job. That took a while longer. I had to go back to school first. The best part is that when you do it, you get so much energy to do even more.
It took me three years and a lot of counseling, but yes. I am way better off now than I was when my first marriage ended. WAY better.
