Selling the house I raised our kids in. Tonight is hard.....I feel as though I have no one to turn to in my immediate world, so I turn to strangers yet friends......who get it. Just need a little "atta girl" to get me thru.

You can do this. It really, really IS going to get better.

I promise. It does get better. You CAN do this!

Attagirl! You can do this. And it does get better. You will feel a sense of relief once you are settled in your new home. This is a good thing. Remember, it gets you one step further away from the past and one step closer to peace, joy, and happiness. Hang in there!!!

Selling the house I raised our kids in.

You are selling the house, but not the memories you made there. You will have them forever & ever.

It helps me sometimes to think of these changes as an ending to a chapter in your life....but you have many more cool chapters to go!

What EvenKeel said. The memories are yours to keep. The house is sticks and stones...

I felt the same way when my home sold. It was rough, but it did get better. It is so much easier to move on without all the ghosts.

You got this!

Thank you one and all. I forgot how much support and love I gleamed from this site right after D day, so glad I came back around. Today is a better day, packed more boxes, and also doing some change of address stuff, it felt good to have a date to forward the mail, and I know that once I get past the move, life will become simpler. I have to find a way to let go of the bitterness. I thought I had, but it rears its ugly head during stressful times.

Been there, done that. The saddest moment of my life was sitting on the porch the night before I closed. My kids were grown and gone. It felt like everyone just got up and left, like I was the last person standing.

But, it turned out to be the best thing I ever did.

The kids were proud of me. They love my new home.

It's gonna be ok.

It is hard, twiceburned. There are so many memories and emotions that swirl during this process of selling the house. It hit me hard last summer.

Make sure you honor those feelings as they arise. Allow yourself to mourn the closing of that chapter so you can walk forward from that past into your future.
