If you have struggled during 2014 to come to terms with your separation, or are starting 2015 newly separated, you may be wondering what the New Year has in store for you. Is it possible to even think that when one door closes, another may open? It is often quite important to look at people who you know have been divorced and see how they manage with their lives. It is rare to find someone who has not been able to build a good life for themselves after separation, once the shock, and the anger has been processed and come to terms with. When you are in the midst of something really distressing on so many levels, it is hard to imagine that life can ever be different. Looking at others who have survived and created something good and different for themselves is one way to give you an idea that life can be good again for you too.
