Los Angeles-based writer and comedian Mara Shapshay's post-breakup survival kit includes a little something for everyone: a Molly Ringwald rom-com, a Star Wars reference... and no shortage of vibrators. "Don't judge me," she says, "but I bought some expensive sex toy -- specifically vibrators after my divorce."

No judgment here. See what else helped Mara through her divorce below, but first, there's something she wants you to know: There is totally, 100 percent life -- and love -- after divorce.

"I want to give women out there hope that if you're patient and keep the faith that you will find true love," she tells us. "I just recently got remarried to my soulmate. It happened when I least expected it. There is life after divorce."
