My heart hurts today.

Ever since I told my daughter that I will be moving at the end of November to live with my partner in another city, my heart feels like it is going to explode.

Not because she got mad. She didn’t.

Not because it didn’t go the way I hoped. It went as I expected.

But because I know she is having a hard time dealing with it and she doesn’t know how to handle the emotions and feelings that this gives her.

She’s always had a hard time with change but this change seems to be even harder for her because when her step-dad died…I don’t know. It’s like her life stood still.

My heart hurts for her because I know she’s struggling and I can’t do anything to help her.
