  • Its very natural to miss certain not sure how old you are sweetie..but in these times its best to keep it going. It seems in your case that you are living a life that makes someone else happy and not this so??

  • My opiinion: Maybe just wasn't meant to be if you have to try to be happy on a daily basis. You know if it is something meant to be you will be happy with out trying so hard...good luck...

  • No, it isn't time to move on, it might be time to take a lover, class, new career, etc.

    You sound like a middle-age crisis about to happen.

    I am also going through this, it feels like a constant restlessness....I am with you sister.

  • When I married I gave up me to give my dh the best wife I could and it was unappreciated. So after about 8 years of "faking it" I had a nervous breakdown. I had changed who I was and pretended to be someone I wasn't. After my breakdown I started doing for myself going for coffee after work with friends and my dh hated it. It drove a wedge between us. I resented him because I wanted to go back to school and he said no. He reented me because I wouldn't bow down to hm. I stopped cleaning and cooking and made him do it all because he didn't appreciate it when I did it. I was workig and caring for the kids and cleaning and cooking while he sat on his ass. I eventually ended up being hopitalized a couple days for depression. My advise is to you is figure out what you want. If you want the married or the single life. You can't have both. You do have to adjust when you marry not change completely. Gotta find a happy medium.

  • well thats not good enough reason to move on...its natural to miss times in our lives , people and memories but thats why we create new ones. Life is what you make it , sometimes its a struggle and confusing but you get out of it exactly what you put in. I know what you mean , i miss my old life too ALOT sometimes , specially when im stressed out and need a break but then i remind myself how fortunate i am to have two healthy children a good husband and to have food on my plate and a roof over my head always. Its easy to get wrapped up in our emotions but dont let them get a hold of you. Now , if you truly are not happy where you are and for legitimate reasons , dont waste your time or anyone elses go be happy, you have one life to live , make it a great one! GL :)

  • It just means your changing. Your growing up, closing a chapter in your book of life, and starting a new one. Perfectly normal to be nostolgic.
