Dear Carolyn: I am a single mom to two incredible boys. My ex-husbands mother is my live-in nanny and general cheerleader (a story in itself). I have a great job, a beautiful home and a supportive boyfriend.
Even though I have absolutely nothing to complain about, sometimes I just want to run away. I want to be in a place for a day or a week (or a year) where no one needs or demands anything from me problems solved, forms signed, appointments made, cash doled out, Minecraft stories listened to, or even just time spent. I love all the people in my life dearly, but I get to a point where I just want to scream at them to leave me alone.
I am trying to be more positive and remember just how great I have it I feel totally churlish even writing this but some days its hard not to feel sucked dry. Do you have any advice for getting back to that grateful state of mind? Trying to be Grateful
