In the next two weeks, I am moving out of my house into an apartment. My mom and sister are flying into town tomorrow to help me move later this week. The whole thing is really bittersweet, especially because I have kids. I know they are going to be really confused in the coming months because they won’t understand why mommy has another place to stay. But at the same time, I feel I need to do this. Both I and my husband need to heal, and being under the same roof really prevents both parties from recovering and moving on.
At this point in time, my husband and I are in a good place. We are able to talk to each other about the move, the kids, the impact it’s going to have on them, etc. without fighting. I am not sure how or if the dynamics will change after I move, but I am hoping for the best.
Ultimately, that’s what we all have to do, no matter what. Stay positive and motivated.
