How do people adjust when they suddenly find themselves without their children.
I have 3 children by 2 mums, 2 girls I see every other weekend end and a little boy I normally have every weekend but that’s changed to 3 out of 4 weekends now. Problem is I feel like I am so out of the loop that I am almost scared to even venture out, too scared to socialise because i dont know how to do it. I am so used to spending time with the kids that this is no longer a part of who i am.
How have other people overcome this what may seem to be an irrational fear?
Hi jj, thank you for your words, appreciate it. My kids are 9, 13 and 5 and because of anxiety from separation and divorce I kind of feel that I have lost myself and just become dad all the time. It was very difficult with having children from my marriage when i separated from my little boys mum as she didn’t really like my ex wife or my girls that much so that’s how i first ended up with all my time taken up with the kids – not that I would change them for the world, they are amazing.
How do you find the local GB Groups? Strangely I remember my mum was in a GB Group as a single mum with me. How things come around.
