Now a days it seems that the ratio of married families and separated families has been leaning towards separated families much more. On a day like Mother’s Day it can be hard for Mom’s, especially if they are alone on this day. As a Mom of two toddlers who I’ve raised on my own for quite some time I completely understand the whole loneliness scenario, and still sadly have to deal with it when the Foreigner goes away for business. We don’t currently both reside in the same COUNTRY. Yes, crazy we are, but that’s what life has dealt us and we aren’t going to give up. Long distance is better then nothing at all.
Loneliness seems to be something that can actually be life shattering if you don’t know how to deal with it. As a Mom you are technically in a way never alone, yet you always have this feeling that you are alone all the time. This is something I dealt with for a very long time, and did anything I possibly could to prevent this feeling. Nothing seemed to work for the longest time, but then I discovered the greatness of just being satisfied with life.
My life has always been one similar to a roller coaster. One week it was absolutely amazing, the next my hair was falling out I was so ridiculously stressed out. Every time things started to be going great there was always something or someone right there ready to turn things around and destroy it all. I quickly learned that I had to put a stop to this and take control of my life so my kids could have a great life.
A motto I’ve always lived by is…
“Everything happens for a reason, so be happy it happened”
This is a very good and true statement in my life. If all the things I’ve experienced didn’t happen where would I be? What things would I have missed? What things would my children have missed? This is why everyday I remind myself I am blessed that it happened and should never dwell on the past, but be happy for the future I’ve been given.
Crazy, I know! But hey, what else do I have to lose? Everyday I live my life for my kids. I may not be in the best of moods, I may have a lot of stress, but these are things everyone has, just like everyone will experience loneliness at some point in their lives as well. Loneliness is not something I wish upon anyone. It can be real hard to deal with, but it is something that can be surpassed if you want it to be.
Don’t sit around feeling sad.
Be happy for what you have.
Love those you have.
Look beyond the hardships in life and be happy for all the things you have. Everything you have is much more then someone else may have in life, so do not be sad as you could be living the life that someone else would do anything for.
