I’m a single mum of two, been a single mum for nearly 8 years, I’ve only just got back into work properly, my children are 14 and nearly 12, I’m now finding it difficult to balance work and home life, my teenager is constantly in his room, he doesn’t seem to want to do anything else, I’ve suffered with mental health issues in the past now I’m struggling to get them to listen to me as we had some very trying times with relationships I’ve had, now I feel I can’t be firmer with them, I let them just get on with, I can’t seem to stick to anything I say, I feel like I’m on a constant downward spiral, what could I do to help myself be better?
It could just be that your kids are just going through those difficult teenage years so unless they are doing something particularly awful I wouldn’t worry too much.
Most of us here can relate regarding ex’s so it’s unfortunately common and probably nothing to do with you as a person, Ive had a few nightmare relationships but I know that one day I will meet someone who is right for me and me for them.
Maybe your downward spiral thinking is just a temporary blip while you adjust to being back at work and trying to balance everything.
