Well it’s been 6 months for me since I had to leave with my teenage children. We were a blended family and his daughters wanted us out. My husband became very abusive and threw us out. My children are teenagers so not young but it’s really effected them and seeing me upset has been awful. I’m trying to stay in private when I cry, I thought I was doing ok but I’m still in absolute shock at what happened. I’m now in rented while he is in the house until it sells. He’s so cold, he changed a lot after a heart attack it was a complete personality change. He went from a loving husband to a cold angry narcissist. I had to get out and I have but I think I’m still grieving the person he was. I don’t know what the future holds. My child are older so does that mean I’m going to be alone in a few years. I’m so scared. Why did he go so cold I can’t make sense of any of it, but I need to move on but I’m struggling is this normal
Hi there. You are not alone. It’s entirely normal to feel like you do. Sometimes trying to make sense of something that makes no sense is just impossible. Even 12 months or 2 years down the line people ask themselves these questions again. My advice would be to think more about what you want your future to look like and less about what is in the past. People change, it’s hard to accept I know, but my mental health improved once I did. Also, don’t rush yourself, be kind to yourself.
