Divorce Detox: Divorce has a bright side: the opportunity to restart your life. As you detox and heal, you may discover a better version of yourself than you have ever known. Here are some benefits to being one adult:

woman at a restaurant
  • It's easy to get a table in a busy restaurant (or sit at the bar). 
  • You can listen to any music and sing out loud. 
  • Your time is your own. 
  • You can take as long as you want in the bathroom. 
  • You're on your own schedule. 
  • You have the opportunity to talk to strangers. 
  • There's no influence of another opinion. (You get to know you.) 
  • There's no compromising. 
  • Conversation is replaced with reading, thinking, writing, etc. 
  • It's cheaper. 
  • You can stay or leave ... it's up to you. 
  • People are generally more friendly to someone who's alone. 
  • There's no small talk necessary. (Many couples don't talk, anyway.)
  • Losing your way leads to more adventure. 
  • There are no expectations. 
  • You're only accountable to yourself. 
  • It increases self-reliance and trust. 
The list goes on .... 

Granted, these are things you could have in a healthy relationship, but in the meantime .... Instead of "Eat Pray Love," "Learn Grow Be!"

“There’s no small talk necessary. (Many couples don’t talk, anyway)”
Well, maybe that’s why they were destined for divorce. I don’t know about you, but my husband and I talk often, small talk and otherwise. Don’t make general assumptions just because you’re jaded.
