I have been alone for a long time now. I started having kids at a young age and thats pretty much all i know is to be a mom and a housekeeper and a cook. My girls are grown and have families of their own and I feel lost. I don't know what to do with my life. I have been divorced for many years and I haven't had a steady home for all those years either.My kids could care less if I was alive or dead, they never call to see how I am or even if I have something to eat and that just kills my heart because I love my girls with every bit of my soul. I feel like it would be better for everyone if i did go ahead and die that way no one would be burdened with me. I feel lost in this world and I have no one.This is a waste of life and space. I don't no what to do with the rest of my life.

My daughter is grown and I've been where you are.I was a single mom for most of her life and when she left there was a huge hole in my soul and my life that I thought I'd never fill.I felt like my life was over and it was just about waiting to die from here on out.I prayed for meaning,for love,for a miracle and then,while not looking at all,met the most awesome man I've ever known,and he's been my husband for 4 years now.I still have those old fears,that if something happens to him I'll be truly alone in this world again.Today I try to stay connected to at least a few people who love me and will be there for me regardless.I have 2 close girlfriends,for example,something I didn't have before.I have 2 dogs who adore me,I have interests outside myself.I am grateful for every day.If I survived it you can,too.Look for things,events,people,places that take you out of behind the isolating 4 walls of your home.Love yourself,be gentle with yourself,and others will,too.If you'd like to start with me,message me.I could always use another friend.
