Hi mom, I’m sad

Oh, darling. 35 is still young. You can still have the life you want. Do you want to put down roots? Find somewhere to call home? You can. You do have people looking for you and waiting for you. I know it’s not the same as romance and a partner and children. But they can be a kind of home. A place to put down roots while you figure the rest out.
Take a breath. Take a break. Sit with yourself and reassess. It might be uncomfortable. Feel those feelings. What is it you really want? And it might be both freedom and a home. We’re contradictory creatures.
Most importantly, I’m proud of you. I’m proud of your accomplishments. I’m proud of what you’ve done with this life you were given. But mostly I’m proud of who you are.
