How to take charge of your life again after losing a partner quickly


It’s in most of our genes to want to find a partner. Some say that discovering the ideal partner is like getting lucky in the lottery. Sometimes, no way could happen. After that, it happens. 

Things do happen, though. Being dumped by your partner is a sad thing that can happen in life. They could die or start seeing someone else. It might be tough to get used to being by yourself again. 

The sudden realization that you are single can be difficult and stressful. Going through sadness over the loss of a future, a partner, or hope can be hard, but when you get through it, you may see the chance to grow and learn more about yourself.

Looking ahead is a great way to deal with grief, which is why we wrote this guide for women on how to get through this hard time in their lives and find comfort in becoming more independent. Here are all the places you need to pay attention to, both practically and emotionally.

Make sure you have a lot of people who can help you feel better. 

Be bold and ask your family and friends for help when things are going badly. If you’re going down a black hole, people who care about you will want you to know that they can call you. 

To help you work through your thoughts and get clear, think about going to therapy or counseling. You can be more honest with strangers than with people you know well. 

Don’t try to hide your money worries. 

It’s hard to plan for both the sudden loss of a loved one and the changes in your finances that follow. Things can get too bad to deal with, but it’s too simple to avoid them. 

The best thing you can do to keep from getting too stressed out about your money situation is to take action right away. Now take a deep breath and start: 

  • Look at your money and make a budget to keep track of what you spend. 
  • Move money into an emergency fund to cover costs that come out of the blue.
  • If you need to, get help or advice from a financial expert to handle your investments or bills.
  • Think about your long-term money goals and start making plans for savings or retirement.

Get back in charge of your house.

There is a simple way to split up the work when you live with someone. I don’t mean to be sexist, but your ex-partner probably did most of the do-it-yourself projects. Some things start to fall apart after they’re gone—expired light bulbs stay the same, shelves begin to come loose, and curtain rails start to sag. Grief can make you feel bad in general, which makes you unable to do some things. 

Taking back control is, again, a therapeutic action that will enable you to heal and move on. Get yourself a DIY kit with proper tools and  drill bits. Track down a reliable handyperson who will be able to help you with the heavier jobs.

Take care of your health and wellbeing. 

Prioritizing your physical and mental health is essential. If you start to feel physically weak, this will erode your emotional wellbeing. Maintain a healthy lifestyle through regular exercise, proper nutrition, and sufficient sleep.

Self-care tasks should be very important to you. There is less worry and better health in general when you do them. Asana, meditation, or even just a walk in the park will help you feel better and see things in a new way. 

Remember that it can be hard to be single again, especially if you don’t want to lose your partner in the first place. We all have to grieve sometimes, but it can also be a chance to grow and get stronger. You can get through this change strong and sure of yourself if you work on your health, your freedom with money, and your growth.
