When fighting loneliness post-divorce, it can be so easy to be consumed by the sense of rejection from previous in-laws and friends. But, you when you recognize that they’re on their own journey in life, wrestling with their own issues and, for whatever reason, are unwilling to be a part of your story anymore, it gives you a context to release them. They miss out on seeing what God is doing in you, and they disable their opportunity to be Christ to you. So, release them, let them choose their own part of the story, and don’t let yourself sit in the self-pity pit. If you stay there, you will also miss out on what God is doing in others, and will disable your own chance to be Jesus to the people around you.
