“My problem is a common one, and I’m sure others can relate. I’m one of those women that wrapped their whole life around her husband and kids. I never established a life outside my family. Big mistake…
My husband and I divorced when our kids were older. I did go back to school, got a job and became a functioning member of society; however, I still had that same problem. I am wrapped around my family! Lol.
My kids and grandkids are my best friends, my emotional support and security. My son-in-law asked recently when I was moving in? I laughed and said “in about five years”. I get it.
It is time to branch out and have a life outside of work and my kids. I just can’t figure out how to do that. Dating isn’t my thing, so I do things by myself. I need to change, I just don’t know how. This pandemic makes life more lonesome for me also. Any suggestions?” – Anonymous
