Writer Shari Lifland and her husband separated one week before their 29th wedding anniversary. Though Lifland says the decision to end the marriage wasn’t hers, midway through the divorce process, she’s made her peace and began to see the upside.

“I’ve learned how to let go of the anger and resentment I initially felt toward it,” Lifland told The Huffington Post. “My ex is a pretty good guy and I genuinely wish him well.”

Below, Lifland, who blogs about the end of her marriage at Nobody’s Bringing Me Casseroles, shares nine things that have made the divorce process easier to bear, including zany Snapchats from her 24-year-old son.

“As a professional writer, I naturally began writing about separation and divorce. My goal was to provide useful advice and support to others but as always, when you give, you get even more in return. When I told a friend that after a fairly short period of time I had managed to not only forgive my husband, but genuinely wish him well, she asked how I did it. I realized that I started believing what I wrote! My post, ‘Getting Divorced? 6 Ways You Have to ‘Let It Go’helped me as much as it helped others.”

The Distraction

“Ladies’ nights at my place. I love my girlfriends, I love my backyard and I love a good cocktail. Rather than sit home alone hosting my own private pity party, I invite my friends over once in a while (always on a week night, so it doesn’t interfere with their couples’ commitments), asking each guest to bring something to eat or drink. Instant cheer!”
