When does the depression end? This life I am leading is one

When does the depression end? This life I am leading is one I never wanted or expected. Yet, here I am a single mom of 4 young kids. The mommy guilt it tremendous. I feel like such a failure. I gave everything to this marriage and he still needed another woman. We were happy. He was too. I know I’m blessed but I cannot get over the sadness.

@SadInChicago89 I can relate to how you feel. But not worth doing the pick me dance. You know what you need to do for yourself even though it hurts right now.

You are so NOT a failure! Please do not beat yourself up! Our lives are filled with twists and turns that we never anticipated. You have four young children and you never thought you would be raising them without their father there. You might want to consider asking him to attend counseling with you. It may bring healing to your marriage.....and if it cannot, at least there can be mutual cooperation and a plan in how to raise the kids and support and love them. You need time to grieve. That does not happen overnight. It is a long journey and it is different for everyone. Give yourself the time you need.....but know that working with a counselor can help you sort out the million emotions you must have. Some days, you may feel strong and some days you can't even imagine making it through the morning.
If the marriage cannot be healed, there are a lot of single parent groups. There are divorce care groups. Look into these in your area. Reach out to local churches for support.....this might even be good for the kids as they go through a lot of emotions and adjustments as well. Reach out to trusted family and friends who can love you through this journey. You need love and support and it is good to seek it out. Talk to your doctor, he/she may be able to suggest some resources that will help you. Pray for your husband, God hears our every word. I wish you peace and hope.
