    Hi

    You’re not alone. I feel like that too sometimes. Everyone’s going through something.

    Hey I’m new here. Don’t be despair. Many of us are feeling exactly the same. Hang in there. It’s rainy day today but it will be a sunny day tomorrow. Take small steps as you go, you can only do so much while you have a tiny person in hand. Seek out help from your family or friends and definitely accept offers when they come. Take care, I hope it’s a better day when you read this today.

    Hi

    So glad you’re feeling better and that you’ve reached out and asked for help.  Like you I feel overwhelmed at times and like you say it’s made worse by lockdown.  It can’t be easy with 2 little ones but please try and look after yourself.  I think as mums we tend to be hard on ourselves so I would urge you to be kind to yourself instead and maybe just try and improve on one thing that’s having a negative impact on your life right now.  Like Chickpea said, baby steps.

    🙂

    Hi

    Its so important to recognise you’re not alone in what you’re going through. I have those dark times when it all just feels like too much but it does pass. I’ve been in tears and totally inconsolable with no one to lean on (friends going through their own issues).

    Glad you’re feeling more positive. I think it’s great that you’ve come on here and its clear that we’re all going through things and that you’re not alone. It’s cold comfort but I’ll take it!

    My mind is buzzing with all the information coming at me hence why I’m still up and posting at this hour but one day at a time right? Like Dory says “just keep swimming”!  🐠😊

    Look after yourself

    Hi I feel like that most days too🙁. It’s hard when you have young children too. A girl I know was in the same situation as you and started doing yoga for 15 mins a day and said it really helped her after her husband left her with 2 small children. She’s now a successful yoga teacher and in a new lovely relationship. It will get better. There has to be rain for a flower to grow!
