I feel so lost right now.
I’m mum to two adult children, one has moved 2 hours away and the second visits her partner most weekends. I’m not particularly close to either, especially my daughter whose personality is so very different to mine. It’s not that we don’t get along, just different to the relationship I have with my own mother, ie. we both enjoy shopping, coffee, etc. That said my mother is now 82 and has recently been diagnosed with a heart condition so she really has to take things easy nowadays. I do support her with picking up the food shopping once a week and we chat and do coffee. My daughter and I never do this, if she’s home she chats with her dad and if I try to include myself she doesn’t stay for long before going upstairs to her room.
I hate my job too, the manager can be difficult and I find she favours my colleague over myself. I don’t care about that as much but it all goes towards me feeling empty inside. I get on with my husband ok but he has health issues so has to be careful, taking plenty of rest.
I don’t have many friends but those I do, I only meet up twice a year as they have their own families.
How do I fill this void? Please be kind, I’m feeling sad this morning.
