Hi, I've been married for 15 years and will be going through

Hi, I've been married for 15 years and will be going through a separation. He will be moving to another state. I have 2 little girls, 6 & 10. I'm really scared because I don't know what to expect as I will have to be a single mom. I guess that's why I am reaching out here because I have never been or felt so alone.

My marriage ended and I was so sad as we were a blended family. I too felt so alone. He left and I kept the house. It made me sad to live there and I so could not afford it. I had no idea what to do and what would happen next...
A friend from work shared that she was experiencing something similar and we began to encourage one another. She was much stronger than I was but hanging out and sharing our journey over coffee and lunches really lifted my spirits. Another friend invited me to her church and I'd never been before. I wept and went home feeling different and overtime, things begin to change. I felt somehow, I was not alone and me and my children would be ok. It was true...overtime we were okay. I still look back and what I had and how I'm no longer a wife but I'm encouraged to know that I have grown in ways that I would have never expected and that I was not as alone as I once believed. YOU are stronger than you realize and like Dana said, above, your girls will be your strength, your light and your joy! You're going to be okay beloved!

Thank you both for your encouraging words! I know time will heal. I just can’t help feeling worthless and a failure. I keep my mind and myself busy so I don’t feel that way. The other night I had anxiety and just cried all night. I usually workout at the gym which helps with my stress. Today I didn’t go because I just felt emotionally drained.

Days like this are normal. I remember wanting to hurry up and get through the day just to get back home and cry. This will take some time for you and your girls, but again...you are not alone and you have the courage and the strength to persevere!! You're on my heart beloved!
