Things I wished someone told me beforehand
« on: June 01, 2019, 04:19:32 AM »
Chances are that most of us almost find ourselves in this phase of life by default, despite doing all we can to stay 'prepared'. Suddenly the kids are out of the house and you have to get back to the kind of environment that existed before the kids came. Most times, that kind of shift can be overwhelming.

I wish someone talked to me about reassessing friendships sooner than later. It took us quite a while to get out of our cocoons and start rekindling old friendships. A reassessment would also have helped us avoid having to be forced into friendships of convenience.

What do you wish you did differently? Are there things you still yearn to do now?

We are still trying to rekindle friendships and trying to make new ones. It's tough as an adult! I wish I had started to branch out before my daughter left for college, too.

Though I knew it would be hard, I was not prepared for the overwhelming sadness and loneliness I felt (and still feel at times). Even if you try to prepare for the change, the reality is a hard pill to swallow.

I think I've heard all the warnings and the guidance I needed when I was younger, so I can't think of anything that someone should have told me. What I wish right now is that I should have listened earlier to what my parents told me to avoid the pains I've experienced in my life.

I relate to what you just said about reassessing or rekindling old friendships. It took us a while to get used to this phase (in the beginning). I agree that as adults, it can be hard to reach out to people that we lost touch with.
