I just can’t see life getting any better.
23 August 2021 at 9:51 am #57923
I am in a really low place at the moment and I cannot see it ever getting any better. I just feel I can give my children what they need or deserve. I am overweight, unhealthy, in. debt which I am working on but it feels like its never going to end. These school holidays have been hard and I feel I haven’t done anything with my children. This is down to not having the money and not having to get up and go to do anything. I feel I want to hide away and hide from the world.
I am not sure what I am hoping from this post, I guess its just being able to put it down in writing and getting it out there.23 August 2021 at 10:36 am #57925
Hello! I’m here for a chat if you want. Recently divorced, currently not seeing my 2 children. I wish I was. It’s not easy, especially during the holidays.23 August 2021 at 10:42 am #57926
Believe me life does get better. Or so I’m told! At the moment, I am counting my blessings and being grateful every day with so much stuff going on in the world.
You could make use of the local library, local park, depending on the age of your children there are some children’s centres around, you could have a board games morning, or a baking morning. I imagine there are local environmental groups who would welcome your involvement. I don’t know their ages but my two seem happier than I think they are just doing things like playing in the park etc. You could have a jigsaw morning. There’s nothing wrong with tv time. Picnics?23 August 2021 at 10:48 am #57928
Being there for them is often enough. After them being at school all day every day they welcome just beibg with you. My place is plastered with inspiring quotes, one of them is basically about being the right/best parent for my kids.23 August 2021 at 10:48 am #57929

Believe me life could be far worse…23 August 2021 at 3:24 pm #57938
Oh sorry my post was to sunflower1925 🙂.
Yes it’s quite easy to think life could be far worse but when you’re not in a good frame of mind/ in a bad way that way of thinking isn’t in your thought process.
Sunflower1925 – start with small small steps even if it’s just getting up and getting dressed.
I always tell myself – my child needs me, I want to be a good role model for her. Even if I can’t give her the world, making memories, even if it’s going to the park for 15 minutes or baking a cake. It’s honestly the small things.
Don’t be too hard on yourself. You’re doing an amazing job23 August 2021 at 4:14 pm #57939
For slimming I used to cook mineral water with ginger root ,tauneric root cynamon n stick ,cardamon and flannel seeds together. Smells ginger but has vitamins zero calories and is cheap.
My child has no father and I pray.24 August 2021 at 6:50 am #57975
Thank you for your replies. I didn’t honestly think anyone would do….so this means a lot.
Your suggestions are great. We have done some of these activities and I guess they are at an age where they just want to sit in there rooms and chat with their fiends.
Jo0808, I will message you my area. It is very kind of you. Your words me a lot, it is hard to just feel I am doing a good job when I feel so low. We are all doing our best.

Well, I must be in the next door low place or maybe you’re feeling more confident now.
I’m a newly separated single mum of 2 teenage boys and I’m finding the whole divorce process draining, not to mention looking for a new home, having to declutter so I can downsize. I have to remind myself of the alternative, being married to a spouse who stopped caring about me since I gave birth to our second child.
I can empathise but I can’t raise your spirits25 August 2021 at 10:54 am #58109
I hope you are well. It is hard going to be in such a position, but it will get better I promise. See the decluttering as a big clear out and to get rid of all the things you have not used in months and as a way to re organise your things rather than it being about the divorce. I have been there and I fully understand.
Always here if you want to chat and off load hun.
Take care x25 August 2021 at 12:28 pm #58114
I have just joined. Going through hell at the moment. Looking for support and friends just like you. I am told that time is a great healer, sorry I can’t offer you anymore support right now, but wanted to reach out and say hi xx25 August 2021 at 3:56 pm #58142
Life can be a ***** that’s for sure. Sometimes it’s difficult,sometimes it’s a complete arse. Sometimes it’s ok. Sometimes it’s irritating, sometimes it doesn’t seem so bad. One day can blur into the next and before you know it looks bleaker still. I can offer no real advice (due to me being a little crap) but can just say keep going and don’t let the bastard’s grind you down. Good luck 🙂
