      Hi everyone. I’m in my late thirties and my husband left me because I wasn’t the woman he fell in love with and I completely neglected him to raise our kids. I sometimes agree that I liked being a mum more than a wife but I hate that I’m now a single mum who will never remarry and have to share my kids. I feel so alone when they are with their dad who has moved on and is happy. It’s been 5 years and I’m still struggling. I’ve put on even more weight and I’m busy all the time. I’m not depressed (I’ve checked) I’m just so disappointed that this is my life. How do you get out of a single mum rut?

      How do you know you will never remarry .. you might meet Mr Right in 2020, fall madly in love and your life will be better than ever.

      I.e. my advice is to think positively. It makes a huge difference. Open your mind. Learn from you past but move on from it. Wonderful things could be waiting just around the corner.

      The best thing that you can do is love yourself and focus on the positive things in your life. Anyone can remarry if they want to I have heard stories of women in their 60’s still getting married it is never too late. You are the only one who can change your life it is only a matter of making the right choices if you want your life to change it should start within.

      I suggest building a support circle (family, friends, fellow single mums) and keep being social. Also try new things and maybe online dating. Some great tips in here:
