Thanks WB. I'm divorced 2 years. I haven't really been alone for nearly 30 some odd years, minus a couple of years along the way. I think I need time perhaps. I've come such a long way already…..
I've always been very security conscious. Perhaps because I moved nearly every year of my life growing up, it affected my adult choices.
Perhaps this is the best thing for me, and I'm just glimpsing the edges of it. I'm in that space where I want to be on my own, I like being independent of a relationship/ the freedom etc, and at the same time I don't want to be alone / fears for the unknown future, etc.
I feel vulnerable. Living alone what does one do if one gets sick? I mean really sick, not the flu? Or any number of the things that can happen to a person? I always thought I would have my husband and we would have each other's back. It's really an adjustment for me to feel alone and vulnerable to life's curves. How do you handle it WB? Do you just not think about it? Trust that in the moment of need, it will appear? This is new ground for me….
