Tomorrow my ex and I are supposed to be travelling to visit his parents. Part of me, feels I should just let him take our son and visit his parents alone. And our beautiful son returns in the afternoon so I can get him ready for bedtime routine. But another part of me, feels I need to be there with him and face his parents after our split.
I feel so tired & exhausted and I just feel it will break my heart if I don’t go but another part of me is, I’m going to have to get use to this separation.
There are no right or wrong answers. If you go it could mean the start of a good relationship between you and your in laws post separation. If you don’t you are giving yourself opportunity to accept the separation sooner. Two bits of advice I have is try not to put yourself in a situation where someone is not nice to you (my in laws blamed me for the divorce) and remember the first time you do anything as someone newly separated it’s the hardest. It will get easier. X
