      Anyone else feel most lonely as a single mother around/after the holidays? My son was with me for half of Easter but I wish things were different for us. I feel envious of friends going camping or holidaying with their full regular families. He’s only young but he’ll feel that way too soon.

      I actually don’t mind it. I find it exhausting all these people running around crazily over the holidays. I prefer to take the time to relax and enjoy time with my little ones at home or in local parks etc.

      I do get what you are saying though as holidays can be a lonely time for us single mums.

      Totally. I hate the holidays, xmas is the worst. Feel so desperately alone as my family is on the other side of the world. Also feel like it is always a letdown for my kids.

      Go on holidays with your son. You don’t need anyone else.

      I feel lost when I don’t have my kids. I can feel anxiety creeping up. I wish we could get away from here.

      Loneliness is a really problem for us single mothers. See these article that might help:

      I feel it every holidays. I feel envious of all my friends taking their kids away on camping trips etc. most of my friends have caravans and I don’t have any camping gear. I feel sad I can’t give my children these same experiences. But I know they do get to enjoy some fun holidays with their dad.
      Holidays are really the only time I truly miss having a partner and somewhere to share holidays with.
