I’m in the midst of a separation, I move into my new property on Thursday with my two teenage children, with my younger child staying with their mum and visiting every other weekend, and I will see him during the week after school etc. The two older ones are not her children hence why they will live with me. My older son sees his Mum a few times a month but my daughters relationship with her has totally broken down.
I suppose, I just feel so heartbroken and alone at the moment. My daughter also has mental health issue, serious ones. And I am struggling to see the light. It’s so emotionally raw right now. Whenever I think of my little one, who is 7, and how I won’t see his little ray of light face every morning and every evening I just start crying. I see a future of darkness with my daughter who can be very volatile when she is in the midst of her low mood.
I cant see the light, even though I’ve made our new rented property as homely as possible. I fear missing sharing my life with someone. And although my Gf and are are separating consciously and are amicable and will always be, and I know being apart is ultimately the only chance we have for happiness in the long run for us all, I’m scared. I’m just scared.
