  1. I’m going through a separation with my wife of 16 years, and I just discovered this site. This article has been a confirmation of everything I’ve been hearing from my psychotherapist and friends. I’m already trying to do the things you mention here, especially dealing honestly with my feelings, and other things like improving my diet and counting my calories, exercising again, meditation, and getting involved in new social activities. I still have a lot of work to do on letting go, but I think bookmarking this article and coming back to it when I’m feeling down and out will be a helpful thing for me to do. Thanks very much for this.
