I am a mother. I have grown kids. My son has been in a relationship for two years. Breaking up is hard to do.
It was a mutual decision between the two of them. They agreed it was time to call it quits. He was okay. I was okay. I have been grieving the fact that she is no longer around. I even had to message her to tell her good-bye…I needed closure.
I’ve been through this before, watching my child’s heart break. His heart isn’t breaking, you understand, but it’s hard nonetheless, because two years is a pretty long time to be with someone. And then they’re no longer there.
You have pictures and things that represent the YOU together, and the memories.
How do I write a post and respect my son’s privacy? But I gotta write this post, you know? Because I just saw on Facebook that she is now in a new relationship.
It was hard to read.
How do you go from being in a committed two year relationship to finding a new guy in…uh, one week?
Just so you know, I had to defriend her. I can’t watch the happy couple in all their new loveness. (I know loveness is not a word. The squiggly red line is telling me so.)
I wish her the very best, I do.
But this is my son…
If you’ve not experienced breaking up as a mother, then my heart goes out to you, because let me tell you, breaking up is hard to do.
It will happen to your child too, sooner or later, chances are, so it’s best to be prepared, as much as you can be. Which you can’t.
Have you experienced this yet? What did you do? What will you do?
