Cope

A couple of decades ago I got divorced, and lemme tell you something: Divorce is nowhere near as much fun as it looks. Neither is the death of a loved one, the loss of one's health, nor any of the other "thousand natural shocks that flesh is heir to."

(I know; they don't look like fun at all. And they're even less fun than that.)

But you know what? Here I am, happy again. I am one of the millions, nay, billions, of "walking wounded," those who have gone through a traumatic experience and come out the other side.

How did I do it?

One step at a time.

Somebody said, "Happiness is not the absence of problems but the ability to deal with them."

You can do it. Whatever it is, cope with it.

You'll be happier. Someday.
