Shop For A New Coffee Shop

Category : Ex-Spouse, Healing

A friend of mine for years was going with her ex-husband every Sunday morning to the same coffee shop. They’d sip on lattes, share sections of The New York Times and relax together. After they got divorced, my friend wasn’t sure if she should go back there or not. Not only did she feel weird about going to that coffee shop, but she wasn’t sure if her ex still was going there.

She asked me what I thought she should do. I immediately told her that she needed to Google coffee shops in her area because it’s time to find a new one. Then, she said she really liked the coffee there. “I don’t give a crap-puccino if you like their Frappuccino. Get out now!” I exclaimed.

Sunday’s are a day to chill and regroup before a hectic week ahead. It’s important to have a clear mind and go to places with positive vibes. In recovery, they say you need to change your “people, places and things.” I think the same goes after a divorce. If you’re having a hard time getting over a difficult breakup, it’s important to surround yourself by new things. Going to the same places you went to with your ex is a big no-no. It reminds you of time spent together there, so nothing good can come out of that. Shop for a new coffee shop and make some new weekend traditions. And who knows, maybe there will be a cute barista working there!

She might want to try a new environment to enjoy the Sunday paper and coffee. How about a book store, the park or with a friend?

This is really good advice!

I agree that you need to go to different places after a divorce. Plus you’re single and everyone at the old shop knows of you as with your ex. You want to broaden your horizons.
