ever felt like you’re now no longer needed? All I ever wanted was to be a mum. People used to ask me “And what do you want to be when you grow up?” My answer was ALWAYS “A mum.” And that’s what I did. Now they’ve grown up,and left home……I feel like I have no purpose.
Yes, I still hear from them, almost daily. But I’m not a full time “mum” anymore. I miss it. All of it, even the bad times. I’ld exchange it all now to have it back as it was.
I know I made the right choice to be a mum, I think I did ok, my kids turned out so well. But I need something now. Or I feel like I should need something now. But, honestly, I’m happy to be just mum. I did a pretty good job. And what’s wrong with wanting to be a mum?
Sure, I don’t gave a career, so I don’t have a big house and a flash car. But I do have 2 great kids whom I love with all my heart. I’m satisfied.
