It hasn’t been that long since 90210 alum Jenny Garth split from her hanger-on husband of 11 years Peter Facinelli. Yet already she’s been seen out and about, having fun and dating different people. She has been spotted with photographer Noah Abrams and quite a few others. So we have to ask, what’s the secret? Most people don’t do very well after a divorce, male or female, especially when the marriage lasted for so long. Eleven years is a long time to spend with someone. Then, to split it off and possibly cut contact with that person requires you to almost find yourself again. So how did Jenny bounce back so quickly? She worked on herself first.
Work On Yourself and Others Will Follow
Jenny and Peter broke up around August and it was only in September that she was spotted in Vegas by the pool having the time of her life. She had obviously been working out and she looked healthy. It’s likely that she put her focus into herself during those days when she was trying to discover who she was again.
Being paired up with someone for any length of time changes you, no matter how strong willed you are. You take on aspects of the other person and they take on aspects of you. When you split, it takes time to get ‘you’ back. That is why it pays to improve yourself any way you can.
Take on a new exercise program, learn a new language, engage in a new hobby, take a class, learn a martial art, start learning how to cook; do anything that will get your mind off of your former lover.
That’s what Jenny did. She spent time on herself and it shows. She’s always been slim, sure, but even if you are overweight or you have some other insecurity, work on yourself and you’ll see that dates will soon follow.
Will Jenny find someone else? Probably. She’s a smart, beautiful woman and will likely land on her feet. And to anyone facing a breakup situation, hang in there and work on yourself first. If you turn your focus inward, start working on your appearance, your hobbies and your interests and forget about relationships for the moment, you will soon see that people will line up wanting to date you.
