Several years ago I went through a painful divorce that I didn't want. I not only lost the man I deeply love, but I lost my dream home and had to relocate and start over with a new job. It was the hardest years and experience I've ever gone through, but I'm doing reasonably fine now. They say that when you go through tough times it makes you a stronger person. I guess I believe that, but along with becoming stronger I've become hardened.... A bit bitter and dull. I feel like I lost some of my sweet disposition, my joyful, fun, carefree spirit. I want to change and become better, but how? I do plenty of good things like exercise, spend time with friends and family, walk in nature, etc. But I'm looking for love again and that hasn't been an easy experience. I'm just not liking my own personality anymore and I don't know how to improve on that.
