Baggage Check: Newly divorced and happy at 28

Q: I’m a newly divorced woman at 28, with no children. I married too young to a man who wasn’t ready to be a husband and probably never would be. I’m quite happy with my new direction in life. But everyone’s treating me like I need to be fixed. My relatives are always pitying me, acting like this is a time of mourning for me. Honestly, the divorce was a long time coming and I am happier now. Why can’t people get that? And how can I show them that without being rude?
