I am a mother of 4 and I think I am depressed I feel as if I don't have a day to day purpose besides being a mom most days I wish I could just stay asleep all day I dread the day time because I live the same life everyday on different days with no one to share it with!!I don't really have a social life I'm not an outgoing person and I am really lonely I am going through a breakup with the father of the last child and even though we have been through dis before (breaking up) dis time it feels permanent we had an argument and said we wanted nothing else to do with each other but I wish dat we could work it out I really thought dis was the man I was going to marry but things are so complicated between us and now after dis argument he has not tried to get back together or apologize and make up and now I obsessively wondering if he ever really loved me and if it wat we had was real? I am trying to move on and forget about him but it's not easy dis weekend I had a date with wat seems to be a really nice guy and couldn't decide if I really wanted to go cuz I kept missing my ex and then thank God my son asked me to take them out instead so I was able to cancel the date but I don't want to continue to live dis same antisocial life everyday I really could use someone to talk to dat won't secretly judge me I feel so empty I like being alone but I want someone to be alone with!!

@Cynt4rmheaven Hello Cynt4rmheaven, thank you for starting this discussion. I'm sorry to hear you're feeling this way. It can be so hard when a relationship comes to an end. Let me tag some other members who can maybe share their thoughts with you.
Hi everyone, how are you today? Have you ever felt like you lost yourself or your purpose after the end of a relationship? What did you do to regain your confidence and help you to move on?

Hi. I actually lost myself while I was in a relationship. I was married for 12 years. Towards the last 4 years of the marriage I felt like every part of me was stripped away. I left the marriage and currently on a journey to find myself again. I started with going back to school like I always wanted. This journey isn't easy, but I push through it everyday with the intention of finding myself again.

@Cynt4rmheaven Hi! Sorry your having a tough time. Relationships are challenging. I can really relate to feeling like I need to do more than what I am doing. I really am hard on myself and expect too much from myself too soon. Giving myself time and a break helps. Sharing with others helps me a lot. I know I'm not alone, but I cant hide, then i start feeling unique. Thanks for sharing. Hope you keep sharing.
