I listen to uplifting audiobooks to keep my spirits up. I have a hard time reading 'self-help' books, but I joined and listening to the audio version really works for me.

Positivity is a find. She does original scientific studies on what makes people flourish and has come up with a ratio of 3:1 postive:negative thoughts. this is the number that makes a tipping point that shifts us from languishing to thriving.

BS, now age 54, d-day 6-2-08, divorced after 17 years M and 20 together. In some ways I have not 'gotten over it'. But I am resilient and have created a good life where I am mostly happy.
