There is no effective cure for a broken heart. You have the right idea. You are using journaling. You are using distraction. Those tools are excellent but may seem to be not working because you have not let time do its job. Time is what makes you sane again. In the meantime, counseling can be used as a way to give you someone to talk to while you learn to live without him. He has moved on and that can be very painful. You can feel - why him and not me. Everyone finds love in their own time. I would suggest finding a therapist during this difficult time. Also investigate any support groups that can help immensely in giving you other people that are in your situation. Also investigate educational material that is focused on surviving divorce. Check your local paper for any discussions, workshops, and support groups that help divorced people. Maximize your contact with close friends and make weekly outings to increase your social contact. Be creative. Use other people in your life to occupy your time. Avoid any entertaining of his love life in your mind. Begin to think beyond the two of you as a couple.
