Xmas is a ***** for me. Memories of sweet family life pre divorce, reality of life as a single bloke 60+. Since my divorce almost 5 years ago, I've felt better but I can't settle, I've moved twice this year and will be moving again in the Spring. My dark thoughts have pissed off my family, what to do?

Hi Crimbo. I know how you feel. I spent Christmas alone this year while my kid was with my wife's family. This is my second divorce. The first was 20 years ago and I remember how afterwards you don't just go back to being the person you were before you were married, you have to re-invent yourself and find out who you are now. I got depressed at the time, and what got me through it was using the time I had to throw myself into hobbies. I got fit (you would be amazed at how many 60 year olds there are at the gym), took up fishing again which I used to do as a kid, learned to play guitar and played in an amateur orchestra. I'll bet when your marriage was bad you craved to have the freedom to do things you want to do.

Thanks for your reply. I become down at Xmas/New Year. I feel a bit superfluous. Things will look up in January.
