My husband and I split over the weekend and I can't find the energy I once had. I HATE it. I can't sleep and I have no motivation. But I'm happy I feel free. Any advice?

  • Take a deep breath and sit back figure out what you want to do and enjoy the freedom. Sit down and figure how you can make the time work for you by maybe going out with friends you have not seen for a while and maybe keep a journal if you feel sad feel it and write about it but most of all just be.

  • Give yourself time and patience. You need to grieve the relationship and move on. Take care of yourself and do whatever brings you peace. GL

  • totally agree with elizabr. take it day by day and enjoy it. do something for yourself or with your kids. and once you have done that you need to sit down and see if you want to continue the relationship with your husband.

  • You will feel like this at first becuae some thing you had is now gone. But you said you are happy your free why? You need to not keep in touch wth him you really like your freedom get over it. Do your daily thing and some do some of the things you like or want that you didnt do with him around to keep you bussy and your mind off of im. So how long were you guys together? Do you have kids together? Is this really what you want or do you feel like you would talk to him again if he call you right now? The best thing is to just keep bussy. Your the only one who knows how yu really feel about him and if you get back with him think about what mad you break up in the first place andif you really do like your freedom or or just like that right now. Good luck and let me know if you need to chat i'm here. Go buy your self some thing that always helps a girl LOL..HA..
