The hardest part of a divorce is being alone. You have to learn how to do everything alone. You have to learn to live alone, to do things out side of the home alone, to sleep alone, and to eat alone. Have you ever sat in a restaurant alone? Did you feel weird? Do you feel like you don’t fit in being a single? Well don’t fret because you will be able to rebuild your life without your ex and you can learn to enjoy being single.
How can you learn to eat alone? It’s hard. It’s so hard to be around couples and be the odd one in the middle, however, it doesn’t have to be. If you are willing to try, you will find that your first time will be very difficult. One you first go to a restaurant, for the first time, without someone you are going to be insecure and wonder how many people are staring at you and what they are saying or thinking. The others don’t really matter, it’s insecurity with yourself. To deal with this you have to go through many steps.
First, you should go out and get all dolled up. Look your best in a new dress and have all the pampering done all day long. When you feel like you are so beautiful, you are ready to go out. Make reservations at your favorite place and strut your stuff walking into the place. People will notice you, but then you will know it is because you look so great and not because you stand out in a negative way. This will make you more confident.
When it comes to your behavior during the deal you can order a drink and read some of the things that are at your table. You don’t have to make eye contact with anyone. All you have to do is sit there and give off some confidence. Soon you will have men coming up to you and giving you a lot of attention. This is perfectly fine. It will give you compliments and you will love the free drinks.
Once you have built some confidence up, you will find that you will have no problem eating out by yourself, but what about eating alone in your home. Well don’t feel bad about being single. Make a healthy meal and then make yourself comfortable in the kitchen or in front of the TV. You may want to cuddle up in a blanket and enjoy some comedy or such on TV. Once you have done this a couple times at home you will become comfortable eating alone anywhere.
The key to being alone is being able to say negative things but then letting them roll off your back. You should not expect to be able to be okay with being alone right away. The longer that you were together, the harder it is to get over the relationship. You may feel like you never want to be alone ever, well it’s not possible. You need to learn how to be independent. You know when you are independent when you are able to go out to eat by yourself and not feel one bit out of place.
For you to be able to be okay with being alone, you have to be okay with yourself. That is why it is sometimes easier for women to get dressed up and look their best before they go. As for men, they usually do not have issues with being alone. They can be alone, they can eat alone, they can sleep alone and so on. Men do not have security issues like women. If you truly dislike being alone, you can spend more time with loved ones, but you will never know how it feels to be independent.
