Mum passed last May, she was my best friend and I miss her more than words can express.
My Dad was heartbroken and so very lost and alone (although I had moved in with him to help him care for mum, so she didn’t have to go into a hospice). I am still living with my father and now find myself in a new situation, that I am struggling to understand.
My Dad has started “courting” a lady he works with. They go out most weekends and a few nights during the week.
Just typing the above sentence had my belly doing cartwheels. I feel such venom toward someone I have never met. On the other hand I am so happy that my Dad has got someone to brighten up his day. He has started making an effort in his appearance and doesn’t seem as sad and lost as he has been.
I feel so torn, there is such a conflict of emotions. I understand this is quite normal but I really don’t know how to tackle it.
Any thoughts or pearls of wisdom gratefully received.
