Divorce loneliness. We’ve all been there. You pour a glass of wine after a long day at work, and all you want to do is some mindless scrolling on Facebook to give yourself a mental break.
But the exact opposite happens. The first thing on your newsreel is a picture of flowers that your high school acquaintance Janine–the annoying cheerleader who married her school sweetheart–is bragging about. The flowers are beautiful, and she put the caption, “30 years strong, married to my best friend” or some corny BS like that.
And just like that, your quick distraction makes you feel lonely because you are divorced and single. It makes you feel angry. Jealous. And now you’re frustrated because. Everybody has somebody but you.
F*cking Facebook. It’s always reminding you of the divorce loneliness you feel.
