I felt like I had let my children down and my family down. I had said I would marry him and love him forever and I felt like that wasn’t fair on my kids.
As friends, we were getting along okay.
That’s the awful part. It just feels like it goes on and on and on.
Moving interstate was really big for me. It was the best thing I could have done.
Let go of that old life.
I had to think about me and my life moving forward.
I’d let myself go. I’d given myself to my husband, my clients, to my children.
I had no idea how to look after myself.
I had no idea how to acknowledge the feelings within me.
I was 40 years old and I had no idea who I was
I spent time on my own.
Don’t push your emotions away. Just allow yourself to be in it.
Sometimes we don’t want to be here but we need to be here.
