You’re never alone

My partner’s best friend and his wife are coming up on a year of marriage and blended family-hood. Recently, my partner and I were at their home and ended up sharing more than I expected. What I realized is, none of us is perfect. None of us have the answer to it all. We are all just going through this thing called life and taking it one day at a time.

In this safe and supportive space, we shared our parenting ideals and expectations. We shared our challenges and wins. It felt great, like a balloon letting some air escape. Some of that pressure escaped too. I think we needed that. Sometimes you live in a vacuum and get caught up in that alone. I really benefitted from hearing from another young couple, and another step mom being thrown into all this newness. I know this can be a challenge, but I am sure grateful to have found folks to share with. I suddenly felt less alone and that things would be alright.

Do you have a family or friends that you can turn to?
