Help letting go of the past

Every day I feel lost and left behind to die but today I woke up feeling it's time for me to move and leave the past behind me. To move into the future and the uncertainty. I need to replant my roots in hopes that they may grow into something beautiful again. Am I making a good decision to leave town and leave the past behind me or am I just running away, or maybe I just need a vacation. Any advice out there would be helpful

Smellycat123456, That's a good sign in feeling like it's time to move forward and leave the past behind. Just make sure it's not a quick decision that you are not ready for. I think moving may be a good idea. I don't feel in this instance that it is running away but more like starting over in a fresh place. A vacation sounds nice which might not be a bad idea in seeing how you feel when you are away and also going over your decision that affects your future before making that final move.

I don't have any doubts that wherever you go you will be able to find a beautiful life again. When you least expect it, magic will happen. Let us know what you decide. :)

Thanks for the advice, I'm not going to make any rash decisions I'm going to take my time and think it through but I need to get out of here. I still live in the house I grew up in and when my mom died I took over and started my family here but now that I'm alone in this big house it feels empty and it's making me feel empty. Too many memories here that I think that are keeping me down but at the same time lots of good memories too honestly I don't know what to do but I'm going to try to keep my head up and try to move forward for me and my kids.

Sounds like you're not making any rash decisions , and you have a plan. Is it just you and the kids? Maybe you do not have to move far just have a change of scenery or take a break.

Sorry about that- I assume that your kids are adults now- and do they live close by? Keep us informed.
