Kate Gosselin has shown us the good, the bad and the ugly parts of her life and now she wants everyone to see she’s doing just fine as a divorced woman taking care of her 8 kids.  “I wouldn’t change my marriage because I have eight awesome kids that I would not change, but people change and they’re not who you thought they were and if they’re not for you, move on.  And I have,” she said, according to People. That’s a winning attitude!  Her show Kate Plus 8 has recently been canceled, but Gosselin continues to maintain that positive attitude and focus on what’s most important, her kids.

Cupid’s Advice:

Divorce is a difficult thing to go through, but there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel, and Cupid has come up with a few advantages:

1. Happiness: Yes, initially you may be heartbroken, but in the end it’s important to realize that the two of you weren’t happy.  Once you move on, you’ll be happy knowing you ended something that wasn’t going anywhere.

2. Find yourself: One of the best parts of life after divorce is rediscovering what makes you, you.  Whether it’s going back to the hobbies you used to love or jumping back into the dating pool, keeping yourself busy with things you enjoy will remind you that you’re self sufficient.

3. Open to new love: Maybe your idea of a picture perfect marriage didn’t work out as planned, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up.  Now that you’re single, you can find your true soul mate.
