Six months on and I can finally see the light

I just wanted to come on here and say thanks to the ladies that commented on my posts when I first began my journey into single parenthood.
My partner left me New Year's Eve for his co worker - he treated me appallingly and couldn't see what he was doing wrong. Slowly though I think he sees it but doesn't know how to deal with it.
It was the worse time for me and my children, we had to move house and area starting new jobs and schools. We've survived though.
I was devastated and at 24 thought my whole life was going to crumble before me.
Some of the comments were harsh and what I needed to stop me hoping of a return from someone who was quite clearly set in his decision.
It's been six months now and although I am still sad about my family being broken I am no longer consumed by anxiety - I am sleeping and I am enjoying the little things again.

I still don't understand how someone can leave their family and start a new life just like that - but I guess one day it will hit him all that he has missed out on and until then I plan on making the best life for both me and my children.

I started writing again, something I loved and lost along the way and channeled my hurt into a positive outlet.
If you fancy a read :

It does get better it really does.

I didn't read your earlier posts, but it sounds like you've been through a lot. I am so glad for you that you've come through the other side and can now start to begin enjoying your new life. I hope things continue to keep getting better for you.

Thanks for sharing this. It's also very helpful for those of us about to step forth on this scary journey.

Heart and soul joined together
Heart keeps pain inside - forever.
Soul is mad, happy and not.
Changes on offers that heart has got.

Heart will bleed, soul will scream.
Heart will love, soul will sing.
Heart won't dance - soul will do,
Rear phenomenon when soul shines through.

Then there is mind, sometimes dominates
Keeping those two behind locked gates.
State of the mind - be calm and cold
Holding one's life on a realistic note.

Mind will work, having no clue
That it could brake when love comes through.
Love doesn't need keys for those gates,
Love is a place heart and soul would escape.

I write when my soul sings ;)

Hope you will enjoy it and good luck with your new life.
Everything is for the best, x
