Here are some ways you can:

1. Give yourself time
During your marriage, you may have been subjected to harsh treatment from your partner to your physical and emotional impact. Take time to calm down for a moment, until your physical and emotional recovered as before.

2. Prepare for change
If as long as you are married you have shared the role of each other in terms of work or housekeeping, now that your divorce does it by yourself (including in taking care of the children if you are a single parent). Begin to familiarize yourself with the routine as a “single”, initially you will be awkward but gradually you will begin to get used again.

3. You are no longer responsible for your ex-spouse
Remember, after your divorce is completely irresponsible to your ex-spouse or family. If your ex still expects the things that were once your obligation, now you are entitled to refuse. Generally there are times of transition to get used to these things. If in your heart there are still feelings of longing, try as much as possible not to see him, until you get used and have convinced that you both have separated.

4. Do not rush to find a replacement and do not close your heart to someone new
Do not rush to find a replacement, let your initial disappointment and sadness completely vanished from your life. Though once your feelings have been hurt, do not close your heart to the possibility of someone much better than your ex entering your heart.
