Feeling down

Anonymous

Sometimes I get so down about myself. I work at home and work a schedule which is opposite my husband’s. I am either alone working or alone with my kids on nights and weekends. I live near family and we get along but aren’t super close. I feel down about not having any friends. I am not much closer to having a friend than I was when we moved 6 years ago. I go weeks without anyone checking in on me. My kids aren’t into sports or new people. Our community is small. My husband is completely anti-social. I try to accept things for this season of life but I feel lonely and defeated most of the time. I wonder if others go through this or if maybe my situation really does need to change.

    I feel the same way sometimes. I also work from home and my husband has a swing shift position. It's hard, beacuse sometimes it feels like you are doing things all by yourself. I have found getting out of the house, even if it's a short walk around our neighbor helps. My young ones loves it too. Hang in there. You've got this
