Tip #5

Don’t Lose Yourself 

If you’ve read my post on What Makes a Successful Marriage, then you’ve read this tip before. If you haven’t, click the link below.

I have never been that person to always want to be “boo’d up.” I actually enjoy being alone. Over the course of these past 10 years, I learned that doing things independently is sometimes warranted. Now that can be as big as vacationing with your friends, to as small as visiting your family on the weekend or spending the day out of the house. But carving out time to “do you” is a necessity so you don’t lose yourself.

One common theme in divorces is at least one spouse saying “I don’t know who I am anymore.” We get married and focus on being a great spouse and a amazing parent, but what about YOU? Self care is a key factor in overall health and satisfaction in general.

Take care of yourself. Spend time alone, or hanging with friends. Allow yourself time to miss your spouse, and make up for it later.😜
