Thanks for your kind reply, but I just don't know what to do. I am very lonely. WOULD LOVE A REAL HUG!!

The thing is when a divorce or deaths happen and there are children they may believe it is their fault.  Many times children believe they are not lovable.  They think "I am not lovable or Dad/Mother/grand-father/grand-mother/etc. would not have left me, if I was lovable". We understand this is not logical, but children may not. 


When as adults we know divorce can happen, and deaths are going to happen at some point.  Children do not understand these situations at times and take on the blame.  So letting you son know it is not his fault you and his father got a divorce.  This is all on the adults in a marriage. 


Joshua may also resent the economic situation you find yourself in.  Instead of his spending money being all his, he is stepping up and helping.  His behavior could also be his age.  Teenagers can be moody with all the hormones raging.  Just keep letting him know it is not his fault...and he is lovable and you love him unconditionally.

A senior from our church moved back to her home state after meeting an marrying again, she was a widower. Has grown children, and grandchildren, her mother and step father still reside in KENTUCKY, UNSURE If SHE MET guy on facebook, or some other site. But she is a great sister, and we all pray for her continued happiness, and it just shows that some are finding joy, and even when it costs them.

Hugz, Stuckbycacti.  You deserve them.


I do think that your status will change in time.  You may not have money.  I don't either.  For that matter, you make more than I do. And if the economy is goes the way of the Weimar Republic, it may be that we will all have to learn how to live on nothing.  It may sound terrible, but time may turn out to be a great equalizer with you as beneficiary!  At least we can pray...



Lynne,


Welcome to the Aging Gracefully group and thank you for your post.  There is also a group, if you care to join.

This is a national site someone mentioned in another group which I Started, so I Thought I Would post it in here its like for the city you are located in www.meetup.com


When I Looked at it a while a go it seemed to have a lot of different even hobby groups, book clubs, bible studies so look at the list of activity groups in your areas. Also some areas have senior groups that get together for dancing square dance and other types, and plays and field trips, some have a minimal membership fee, like twenty five dollars in this area, might be cheaper in yours two suggestions.
