Trying to find work

Stacy - posted on 01/17/2012 ( 3 moms have responded )




Hi..anyone out there that can help/give advice in my situation would be MOST APPRECIATED! I am a 45 yr old stay at home mom of 3 boys ages 10, 8 and 7. I have been married for almost 12 year but I want to divorce my husband as I am tired of his verbal abuse. After 12 yr of the verbal abuse...I am finding it hard to have confidence in myself that I can do anything outside of the house. I've been searching online day and night looking for things that I might like to do and that could work with my schedule as I need to pick up my boys from school at 3 pm everyday. There is one thing that I would LOVE to do and that is I would love to open up my own Consignment shop!! But the more research I do on it...the more I feel "deflated". I am feeling so overwhelmed at the moment . I want to take back MY LIFE because deep down, this is not the person I am meant to be!

Hi Stacy!

I can totally relate to your post...souns eerily like me, but I have girls!! Is there any consignment shops that you get a job with and then venture out after you see the ins and outs. Take baby steps, do research, if possibly go back to school for some refreshing, look into the school district for aides. Remember that you can do anything you set your mind to. If possibly maybe see a counselor who can help you deal with you depression. I'd love to know how it all turns out for you!!

Don't give up! Keep looking into grants and bonds for women to start businesses. I know its hard to start over but you will feel amazing once you do.
