I would love any advice anyone is willing to share about how I can learn to make it alone without falling into destructive behaviors. I would love to know any positive things recently seperated/divorced people here do to handle the pain of alone. I've recently seperated from my husband of 7 yrs. I'm raising my 6 yr old daughter. I started to feel un-needed and un-wanted a couple yrs ago and cheated on him several times with very in-appropriate people (his cousin,his friend, someone I met online). Then he cheated on me which I found out about and he still does not know about what I did. He has a alcohol problem and some emotional issues he refuses to get help with. I used my friend I met offline to get thru the pain of the breakup but now he recently decided we couldn't try because we are two different people. We really are as opposite as it gets. Would have been another very destructive/unhealthy relationship. I want to find a positive direction to go, for me for my daughter sake, instead of always feeling like a train wreck about to happen. Please help. :)
