Trisha9054 pointed me towards this group, thank Trisha. I am getting divorced after 31 years. I know this is the right thing to do since we have never been happy together, and I know you are thinking "how did you let 30 years go by?" well, raising 4 children and making their home a happy one. I think we were successful in doing that although I had to hide my feelings and contain my emotions for 30 years. Again I know, not a good way to handle things, but I did it for my kids. Now the kids are out of the house and it's time to move on. I should mention the kids are okay with the separation. They feel we did our job raising them and it's time for us to be happy. Problem? I just don't know what "happy" is - living as an adult -by myself. I just can't fathom it. I went to college at 18, got pregnant at 20 and then got married just after my 21st birthday. I have NO idea what it's like to be on my own. To say I am scared is an understatement. The worst part is at 52, I feel like my life has past me by and there isn't much left except the retirement home and rocking chair. This is a HORRIBLE feeling. Please convince me that I am WRONG.
