When people undergo difficult times, their tendency is to isolate themselves from their friends, family and/or community. I can not stress enough how crucial it is to get involved in the community and go out with friends. Some suggestions would be to join a book club, volunteer with your favorite charity even if it’s just to help set up for an event. You don’t need to do anything monumental. You will be surprised how supportive they will be. I found tremendous help and comfort in Journey to Safety, which provides support to victims of domestic abuse (tel: 781-647-5327).
