I have a teenage daughter,16, who decided she is no longer my friend.I am heartbroken & lost.What is there for me to do?
My daughter and I used to be quite close, in a way were best friends. It has been a difficult last few years very many tansitions.
Both of us are dealing with a lot of stuff healthwise and family/friend wise.Lots of losses, especially in the family dept for my kid.
For me she is my main family and it has been hellish to deal with her separating from me, *ETC*.
I am single and so I have very minimal support. I do attend a parenting support group.
I guess I am the only constant thing in her life, although you woudn't know it by the hostile way she is with me most of the time.
Frankly, being a parent has been the definig role in my life, the role which has brough me great pride, joy, fulfillment and structure.
*I seem to be really stuggling with my identity, so it is an existential crisis in my life that is for sure!*
Thanks all :)
