hope this finds you well or as well as can be! It’s an awful feeling when someone makes this choice for us.
my wife did a very similar thing, it’s earth shattering. I’m 19 months down the line and still can’t figure it because she won’t give them. So my advice would be stop trying to work it out. And don’t look to blame yourself or him.
Turn to family and friends you’ll soon find that comfort will come from talking it out and not internalising your feelings
Hope you’re holding up okay. I still can’t believe my boyfriend left me and I was 36 weeks pregnant at the time. I’m still trying to get past it and, I’m imagining like yourself, I can’t help but hold onto some sort of hope that it was just a dream and that we may get back together.
But, honestly, after a few weeks I have realised that the best course of action is to take the time to focus on yourself and let go of that hope because it is a barrier to feeling better. We may end up back together one day – my parents got back together when my brother was 6 months old – but, that’s because they both had space and focused on themselves and it was a natural progression of things.
My only advice is try on focus on remembering who you are and what you enjoy and focusing on your relationship with your children and any family you have. That’s what I’m trying to do, not always successfully, but it’s all about trying!
