How To Believe in Love Again by Laura Lee
At 49, divorced and miserable, I discovered exactly how tough it can be to believe in love again. But after decades of struggle, I was determined this time. I started my own dating service, met lots of midlife daters and learned new ways to change my heart, my mind and my feelings towards love. Guess what happened next?
I finally found the love of my life! We were both 50, but felt like a couple of kids!
The break up of any major relationship is the perfect time to process how you are relating with others. The last time I launched myself into such deep analysis was when I got divorced and then lost my job/career in 2004. I knew this was a great time to reevaluate my life priorities. I decided I didn’t much care about anything but love, because if I didn’t ever find one authentic, beautiful love relationship, I wasn’t so sure I wanted to live that much longer. I knew that if I spent some serious time improving my relationship with myself, I might be able to attract relationships more appropriate to my own level of maturity and consciousness.
