The fear of the unknown and our crazy human brains can be stifling!
As I think about the kids, and the ‘imagined’ negative impact on them, I get a little frozen. Frozen in those negative and sad thoughts, frozen in the fear that we are going to completely F them up and that they’ll be lonely, bullied, sad, angry and won’t fit in.
Breathe. Get over those thoughts Mama!
Here’s the deal. They are going to feel those emotions regardless of this move or not. Its part of life to experience negative emotions. Right now the kids are the HAPPIEST when they are with us, and the four of us keep each other feeling stable, loved, happy and we fit in. So perhaps we just need to focus on the family unit, the love, the fun, the adventure together – so that they have that core stability and love? So moving TOGETHER and staying solid together is more impactful for kids? And that every other experience will provide them with other skills to navigate life positively in the future?
Cue negative thought. Except if one of us dies. Or worse, both of us die.
Oh then my thoughts on the kids happiness would be totally screwed.
