Replacing common myths by effective truths (Part 7 of 9)

[3] Passive acceptance should be replaced by workable plans: Put yourself in the shoes of someone who gets divorced in his mid-forties.

For this man, it feels good to hang around his old friends and be comforted for the difficulties that he is encountering, but is this an effective behaviour?

Maybe they will introduce him to someone nice who will put his life back on track. Otherwise, he will just have to get used to loneliness, won't he?

The truth is that he needs to make a workable plan to rebuild his life. Should he join a health club? Should he use on-line dating to meet a new romantic partner?

To be continued in the next post.
