First day back to school … are you ready for it? Summer vacation is over and now it’s time to roll up the sleeves and get back to work.
This past summer I’ve really noticed how much my daughter has really grown; both physically and emotionally too. I can’t believe how the years have gone by so quickly. In fact, I’ve really noticed how I’ve aged and how (one day) I’ll be alone. I don’t want to bring everyone down; however, I’m sure that mothers everywhere have either thought of this or experienced it. In just a few years, my only child will be all grown up and off to live her life and I will be left behind. I may, or may not. be with my partner … the reality is I will find myself without a child … all alone. I can’t stand to think of the future.
Have you ever thought about what your future might be like, when your child becomes older and goes out into the world? Perhaps you’ve experienced it already? What are some ways to cope?
