Things Not To Say To A Recent Divorced Woman

Divorce can be very painful and stressful. It is a time where others feelings may not be the best advice offered. Opinions from outsiders can be sharp and unrelenting.

Below is a list of advice that should not be told or given to a recent divorcee.

  • "I don't know what you saw in him from the beginning."
  • "He continued to cheat on you even though the two of you considered therapy."
  • "It's been a month. You should get out and meet other people."
  • "Why are you still holding a torch for him? He's moved on."
  • "He was a mama's boy. He never did change."
  • "He had a lot of baggage in the beginning."
  • "I never did trust him. He always looked as if he was up to something."
  • "I saw him with another woman on two other occasions while you were married. I just didn't tell you."
  • "He tried to come on to me. I'm glad you divorced him."
  • "My husband tolerated him, but he was never a true friend of ours."
  • "His mother was too nosey for me. She was always in your business."
  • "I would give away everything he gave me. Especially the jewelry."
  • "You should tell his family to let you be. He is no longer a part of your life."
  • "I never understood why you let him control you."
  • "You are better off without him."
  • "Your children will get pass your divorce probably quicker than you will."
  • "Stop feeling sorry for yourself and find someone else."
  • "It is not the end of the world. There is someone else out there for you."

If you haven't experienced a divorce or know someone close to you that have, you may not know how difficult it is to cope with the aftermath. Giving your support in a positive way, could be the best advice available.
