Take some time to process your emotions: It is natural to feel a range of emotions when saying goodbye to a child, including sadness, regret, and grief. Allow yourself to feel these emotions and give yourself time to process them.
Seek support: It can be helpful to talk to a therapist or trusted friend or family member about your feelings and the situation. They can provide a safe and supportive space for you to express your emotions and offer guidance and advice.
Practice self-care: Taking care of yourself is important during this difficult time. Make sure to get enough rest, eat well, and engage in activities that bring you joy and relaxation.
Consider reaching out to your child: If you feel comfortable doing so, you may want to reach out to your child and try to communicate your feelings and desires for a relationship. Keep in mind that your child may not be ready or willing to reconnect, and it is important to respect their boundaries.
Find ways to honor and remember your relationship: You may want to create a memory book or write a letter to your child to express your love and the special memories you shared. These can be helpful ways to cope with the goodbye and keep the memory of your relationship alive.
