You will be able to do things you never imagined on your own

You will be able to do things you never imagined on your own

hi mama,

You are going to be ok. You can do this. It feels like the end of your world now but I promise you it isn't and that you will be ok, good, in fact more than this, you will be great and happy again.

You are stronger than you realise. You weren't as happy as you thought you were. You can be strong for S and for L and hold it together for them and for you. It might seem impossible now but you can and you will. Make them your focus. Shower them with love. Hold them tight.

You are going to learn so much from this. You can run a house on your own, a business and your children. It isn't always perfect but you can do it. 

You feel lonely and empty. Not sure how and why this happened to you. Take it a step at a time. Rely on your mum, your friends and family. Talk when you need to, don't when you don't. It's ok to cry. Try and stay strong for the children but it is ok if they see you cry.

Every milestone will hurt in a new way, birthdays, Christmas, starting school. The next time it will be that bit easier. 

You will be able to do things you never imagined on your own, starting with eating out alone with them, even taking them on holiday on your own. Your children will remember these things.

You can do this.

xx
