I’m listening to many friends and aquaintances hit the empty nest or less full nest as their kids are go off to college or move out for the first time. I’ll be honest, it’s tough to relive that time in my life. My life was spiraling out of control then and it makes me feel some of that bubble back up. But only by talking about it will we start to make changes.
It’s ok to have all the crazy emotions, feelings and ideas going through your head.
This is a time of excitement, yet tremendous sadness as well for us mommas. Our entire world changes and change is scary. We are excited about their next adventures and then kick ourselves for being selfishly sad for ourselves.
Don’t fight it the feelings. Give Yourself permission to be in them for a bit.
You do not have to be ok. You do not have to put on a brave face. You do not have to be strong right now.
I hope today’s podcast helps you validate what you are feeling. Drop me a comment about it.
