Thank you for reading this and replying. Thank you for being open and honest. You actually gave me goose bumps and brought tears to my eyes. I hope you reconnect with any friends you may have drifted from. I promise your friends would love to see you on social media. Your children mean the world to you, but there is more to you than your children. They are not your identity.

As women, we have worked fiercely to gain an identity outwith the wife and mother confines.

Thank YOU for being open to reading it, as someone from the other side. I hope it wasn't an offensive read.
