I'm not going to lie, I've been dragging the past week. Ever since Thanksgiving, my mindset has plummeted. I had this same feeling last year when I had my first "separated" Thanksgiving and Christmas from my children's father.While it makes me happy to see others happy, it the pit of my stomach I feel angry. … Continue reading Celebrating Holidays Separately.
