The holiday season is generally thought of as a time of joy and love but for those who are newly divorced, it can be a time of loneliness. You may live far from family and miss the comfort of being around loved ones this time of year. You may dread going to holiday parties and ringing in the New Year without a partner makes you feel more like jeering than cheering.
It's common for those who are newly divorced to feel an emotional distance from people, thus feeling lonely even if they're in a room full of people. Take heart though, there are things you can do to help chase away those lonely feelings, during the holidays and all year long.
