I have spent the last 16 years being a good parent after being widowed. Now my daughter has her own social life I’m left thinking “hmm, no single friends, how do I go about finding my own social life when I have no single friends?” Anyone else have this problem? Any advice?
Hi. I was widowed 5 years ago and my son is now 17 and largely doing his own thing. I know exactly how you feel and I’m also wondering how to build a new life for myself. Although I know the answer is to ‘get out there’ and join clubs etc but I think the hardest thing is finding the energy after dealing with the whole grief/single parenting thing. The best advice I’ve been given is to look after myself for a while, instead of being a carer of others. In time I’m hoping that my energy levels will return and I will find it easier to put the effort into meeting new people and creating a social life just for me. Good luck to you 😃
