    Hi everyone!

    So I wanted some advice on dealing with the feeling of guilt when separating from a partner. It has been a long time coming and we have basically stayed together purely for our little boy who is 2. I’m just at a point that I can’t continue to coast any longer in this relationship and I want to try to put myself first but this is the problem – I’m overwhelmed with guilt about how this will affect my son, how confused he might be and if it will be damaging to him to temporarily move somewhere else until I can find a permanent home, again uprooting him. Has anyone got any advice or if you have been in a similar situation and how it all worked out?

    I don’t see my son 9 or daughter 4 atm. Kids are more resilient than we think. Your son will be okay. He will cope well. I’m not sure how you explain it to him but if you make it’s easy to worry I know. I worry about how my kids are going to be affected. There will be less problems if you can both come to an agreement etc. My sister split and it’s worked out so well for their kids. Sorry. I’m not giving much advice here. But kids cope better than adults.
