  9. Your ex spouse finding someone new and that person becoming a part of your children’s lives.
  10. Your ex spouse living a better and more productive life than when they were living with you.
  11. All of these things can bring out the green-eyed monster known as jealousy.
  13. How you handle that jealousy is where it counts though.
  15. Do not tell your children they should not love your ex’s significant other.  It is hard when your kids like the new person in your ex’s life.  Think of it this way…children can never have enough people who love them.
  16. Do not say negative things about your ex’s new significant other.  Your children will repeat it, and it will cause issues between you and your ex when it comes to co-parenting.  You also do not want your kids to feel they are being disloyal when they form a relationship with your ex’s new partner.
  17. You are not in competition with your ex. There is no winner or prize at the finish line.  Look at the good things you have in your life since you have been divorced.
  18. Do not disparage the good things your ex has achieved since your divorce.  Look at your own achievements and pat yourself on the back for them.
  19. Do not bad mouth your ex to other’s regarding positive change.  It takes too much energy to hold that much anger inside.
  20. Think about what you have gained by being in this new found place in your life.  Freedom to think, choose and be who you are, which are all priceless.
