Out of place...

Just looking at pictures taken of my whole family this weekend (my brothers, their spouses, nieces, nephew and parents) and I feel so out of place.  I was the first one married (and the oldest) and now am a single mother...I am the only one without a spouse.  I feel so left out because of it.  And honestly, feel embarassed about it all the time....I hate these feelings....

I have moments like that. I am the only one with kids and my younger sister is married and I was never married. They are very short moments that go as fast as they came and they were really present when my sister got married.

Thanks ladies. I don't feel this way all the time, but do on occasion.

Nothing to be embarrassed about... better to be the single one rather than the unhappily married one.

me too, hon. i  can totally relate. something happened today (actually, yesterday) and i cant even remember what it was. a couples thing, a family thing. and i am not in one and it is really bringing me down now. i am so tired of feeling left out. left behind. having the stigma of the word "divorce" looming over me. i realize that i cannot even be around commentaries or discussions about that stuff b/c it hurts so much right now. i am starting to get angry. i didnt choose this. and yet my stbx wont finalize things. its like he has me right where he wants me and i am left in limbo.
