I am a single mother, my daughter has gone to visit her fathers side of the family,I should be happy for the break , but I am feeling very lonely, as a single i Have been so busy looking after my daughter that I haven’t made friends and feel isolated .
I know it can sound cliche but sometimes when I feel at despair or over thinking, I grab a pen and piece of paper and I write down how I’m feeling in that exact moment. Last week it was 9 pages and before I knew it, an hour had passed! Reading it back, I didn’t even realise half the stuff I had written was bothering me and then I spent another hour thinking that over! It does help and it passes the time x
