Its been a long time coming but its over. He has left and is on his way back to Greece. The son has gone with him but I have put no pressure. He is 17 so he needs to do what he thinks is right. I have closed my facebook down as I really don't want to talk with anyone at the moment. I have spent yesterday and today tidying and making the house mine again and putting up the tree. My youngest who is with me is upset and missing them and I am finding it hard to deal with that as I just want to feel relieved that its over but feel guilt that I am hurting her. All 3 of the kids are hurting and while I know that I am doing the right thing the guilt for breaking up the family is horrid. Other than that there is nothing, I thought I might have been more excited for the next step or relieved that I took control. But there us just nothing.
Hi, saw your post and had to answer. I hope you are ok.
Me and dh separated recently, and I would say that the feelings we have both had are similar to that of when someone close dies. A mix of anger, sadness, acceptance, and that these emotions can hit at any time, in any order and people react differently.
