I am in my mid 50s and finalizing a divorce (next week). It was a very emotionally devastating event for me, even though at this time I realize that I can't go back. (still think about it, though). So, here I am in my very nice apartment, the very first time I have ever lived alone. I had roomates in college, got married to my first husband before we graduated, and moved in with my soon to be ex husband before the first divorce was finalized. Along the way had two lovely children who are now grown.
So, how do you live alone? I was very isolated while married to my soon to be ex husband, we really had no friends (another story). So, no friends. My children and sister live close by but they are busy and I do not want to be clingy. So, I sit alone in my apartment alone. I could go out, but where? What are my interests? I have spend my whole life being either a daughter, mother, or wife and while I am still a mother, my kids are grown. How do you bread out of this? How do you find out what you are interested in?
