Supporting Mommas Through the Transition of a Child Leaving the Home

I’ve been feeling the need to Support Mommas who are going through the Transition of a Child Leaving the Home… 🙏🏼❤️‍🩹❤️‍🩹❤️‍🩹

As a Momma in this situation myself I just wanted to share what’s been on my heart.

The thought of your child leaving home can be a daunting and emotional experience. 😭🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

From the moment our children were born, we were responsible for their wellbeing and nurturing them into independent adults. 💛💛💛

But when that tender time actually comes for them to spread their wings and fly…. it can leave us wondering where to turn. And feel a sense of loss that we may not know how to quite process.

As an empathetic Momma, I want to offer support and tenderness to all the Mommas out there facing this transition. 

1️⃣Firstly, I want to say that what you are feeling is a natural part of the mother-child bond. It’s normal to feel sadness and even a sense of emptiness when your child leaves the home. All of a sudden, there’s a silence in the house that can be deafening. But it’s important to remember that this is a transition. In time, we will find a new normal and learn to embrace the transition in your family dynamic.♥️♥️

2️⃣Secondly, it’s important to recognize the role that our emotions and thoughts can play in this transition process. It’s okay to cry, to talk to others about how you’re feeling, and to seek out support. You may also find comfort in journaling or expressing your emotions through art or other creative pursuits. Whatever it is that works for you, make sure to prioritize your mental and emotional wellbeing during this time.❤️‍🩹

3️⃣Thirdly, focus on the positives that come with this transition. While it can be difficult to let go, the transition of child leaving the home can also open up new opportunities for you and your child alike. You may find that your relationship with your child deepens as you learn to communicate and connect in new ways. You may also find that you have more time and energy to devote to your own passions and pursuits. Embracing these positives can help ease the grief and loss you may be feeling.🙏🏼

4️⃣Fourthly, while it may be hard to watch them leave, they will be embarking on a journey of growth and discovery that will shape them into the person they are meant to be. Stay in touch with them, support them in their adventures, and offer your guidance and love whenever they need it. This transition may be new for you both, but it’s also an opportunity for growth and learning.

Together, we can support one another and embrace the beautiful changes that come with this transition with Grief & Loss. I’m always in your corner Momma. 

In Healing & Hope, 💛Tanya ((hugs))
