When friends tell you to go out and "meet someone because after a breakup is the best time to meet somebody new," don't listen to them. You don't want to meet anybody new until you have processed your last relationship. You want to know what happened, accept what has happened, embrace the results and learn the lesson that your last relationship presented you. You want to go into the next stage of your life, the dating stage, with an open heart and open mind. Don't go out angry, disappointed or upset, because the law of attraction will bring you people that match those emotions. Why Is Divorce On The Rise?
