My husband got a promotion and we moved to Oklahoma. My kids, 11 and 13, wanted to stay in California with their dad because of their school and friends. I think about this everyday. Did I make the right decision leaving. they know i love them and would welcome them with open arms if they wanted to live with me. We were having a hard time financially making it in California and now we are doing a lot better. I can't stop beating myself up for this move and keep thinking i did an awful thing. My kids are very happy and I get to see them every couple of months but that is so hard for me. They lived with me full time in California. I talk to them all the time, text and facetime. I need to get over my guilt or it's going to eat me up. i just need some words of advice. Am I horrible for leaving? They aren't angry with me or think I've abandoned them. I feel like I have. I'm sorry if I sound selfish. I'm trying to process all this. About to pack up and go back to California.
