New Journey

Okay this is such a New Journey for me I've never lived alone before. I'm okay with it but now that I'm not dealing with the craziness of my marriage I'm really missing my children. All 5 of them that includes two son-in-laws. I wish I could hang out with them but they're also busy and four of them live 3000 miles away. My 20 year old daughter is the only one who lives in my state but she's busy with school I beg her to come see her mom. She left home a year ago and I haven't seen her since but not because she didn't want to see me but because she wanted to escape her father whom I just escaped from myself. I totally understand but I miss her having a good cry tonight

Do you have a good therapist or divorce care.org
I go to alanon and church too. Every little bit helps

caring Supportive people. HUGS

Try to keep yourself very busy. Volunteering may be something to look into. Do you still work? Do anything except sitting around and feeling bad. Things will improve as time passes.

I'm doing much better now and my daughter is coming over to see me. In that last post I was still in an adjustment period and not sure what to do with myself. It is an act of Mental Health and well being to become comfortable with the company of ones self. I had spent my entire life allowing others to depend on me. I'm changing that now and learning to Define myself differently. It is a journey into one's own mind heart and spirit but a journey well spent. I will never again allow someone to disrespect me and use me as I have in the past. On a lighter note living alone my house stays clean all the time LOL I watch what I want on TV and just simply enjoy life now.

That's all good news Bren. I'm so happy that you get to see your daughter again. A house that stays clean is easy to clean!
