My husband left me several months ago and it still hurts. These are the first major holidays since he left and they are extremely difficult. I have three girls who are 12, 11 and 7. I was a stay at home mom but I am not back in college to get my degree and find a way to better my life. I just dont know how anyone goes through this and what they do to help them through this. I see a therapist, I am on medicine for depression and anxiety but I still hurt and feel so empty inside. He left me in the night with a note saying he didnt love me anymore. I never saw it coming. I miss him and the way my family used to be everyday. The day he left me he went to another female he had been talking to. They are now engaged and yet we arent even divorced yet. He says I am making things worse because I wont make my kids go to visitation. I let them decide if they want to go and most of the time the older ones choose not to go. He is mad because I wont let him have the kids around this lady and her kids. I think they have been through enough and dont need to be around her considering she broke apart the family. I hate this and dont know what to do. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
