My partner left 4 months ago, I have four children and I am struggling dealing with everything, he wasn’t much help when here anyway but the emotional Tol it’s taken on us all is very difficult and I am worried about the children.
Ive been single for 2/3 years , I only have one daughter , a couple of what I’d call Close friends but they have busy lives of their own , I spend most of my weekends just myself and my daughter (7) , and evenings sat infront of the TV! , her father isn’t around anymore so it’s just us 24/7 , I have loved every minute of it and it’s bonded us closer then I think if we were a ‘full’ family . . But it does drain me and some nights I feel soooooo lonely and wonder if it will ever end . . . And then I realise how lucky I am to have my daughter and I feel silly , she will grow up far too quickly and although it’s tough going being a single parent the lonely nights are not forever . . . Hope this site is helping you to feel less alone in your situation x
thank you for your kind message – it helps to know I’m not the only one. I too tend not to have many close friends and my nearest relative is an hour and a quarter away so I don’t see a lot of my sister and her family as she has a very busy life.
Well done for staying so strong, it can be so tough, I made the decision to leave my marriage after 20 years of gas lighting and still being punished for it. I have support from friends but no one quite gets the fear and loneliness unless they have been through it hey?
