Thank you for sharing your story. I am so sad for your loss. Losing your mum is so difficult, especially since she knew you so well.
You've done the right thing by writing here. Writing is so good for the soul. Yes, you mus miss her and her words so much. Let me reach out my hand to you. You can talk all you want.
Breaking up is difficult. Especially if you've had a really good relationship. I'm not sure what words your mum would have give you. I'm not a mum, so I hope I do okay for you.
Did you want to talk about what has happened in your relationship? Sometimes people are just not suited for one another. When a relationship first starts one doesn't know everything about the other person. As time goes on you find out things that maybe one or the other of you don't want to live with. That's hard to take, but in some ways it's better to find this out sooner.
On the other hand if you've just had an argument, maybe you've both got to sit down and talk it through. I've been married for over 35 years, one of the major things that has kept us together is to - communicate with one another. It's no holding back communication. It's important.
The other great thing I've learnt to is to compromise. Both of us have some different views on things, want to do different things. But we're lucky neither of us are selfish, we are happy to want to please the other one. So we take it in turns, one time we'll do what i want then another time we'll do what he wants.
What keeps us together I think, is we have the same values about life and the world. This is our foundation.
Please feel free to talk about whatever you want. We're hear to listen, support and care for you.
