I am thinking of the men and children who are facing Christmas day as separated or divorced. More so if it’s your first. It can be daunting and awkward and ofden nasty.
My heartfelt sorrow and support to all those in this position. All I can say is treat the matter as a transitional period of your life and start making plans to change the situation in the future.
There are many in this site who can provide advice on how to get through.
I found this on a UK site that has suggestions on how to cope and do things.
