I love my kids dearly. but they will leave home one day. What will the relationship I'm left with be like. When I realized this, my husband became my first. It also makes "cutting the apron strings" a whole lot easier.
Always putting others first. I pick others up by putting myself down so I have begun to spiral down into a depression state. I just want someone to tell me they love me without me having to compliment them first on my losses.
