How does one feel comfortable about self after a divorce? How can I change?

I am recently divorced. I am 53 yrs young. I am not comfortable being alone on outings, so I don't go. I don't know where to start. I want to change, and be more outgoing like I used to be.

  • I'm assuming you're talking about being invited to group things and feeling awkward as the only single gal there? Perhaps the people doing the inviting have plans for you, and want you there as a single!!! Get a friend to go places with you. LIfe should not revolve around a man in a relationship.

  • start small. get a friend to go to the movies or the mall or where ever you would like to go. Maybe lunch or something. Once you do it ; you'd be surprised how good it feels.
