Jen in NY Posted April 7, 2013 Share Posted April 7, 2013 This is our first truly warm day, and, having already turned yet another page on the calendar, I am really having a terrible time thinking about the changes ahead. We have always been so very close as a family.... I need some advice about letting go gracefully. The thought of an empty place at the table is doing me in right now. If I continue along the road I am on, I will just be a blubbering mess for the next four months... and believe me, it's not pretty. :crying: I know I should be happy. I am happy - happy that she has reached some goals, made some new ones, has good habits of mind, etc. etc. Nothing tragic has happened! It's all good news! Everyone is healthy and these are just normal life changes! I want to be supportive and react normally to all of this ... instead I cry. A lot. It's embarassing. So, hit me with your best practical steps I can take to ease this transition. How did you get through it? *heads for the box of kleenex......* Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
