As I have posted my DD3 left for college last week. Over the last few months I have been posting on an Empty Nest forum board.
There are a lot of ladies (especially this time of year) posting about how devastated they are over their child leaving home.
I see no link to work status. The similaries I do see "They are my best friend, I don't know what I will do without them" and those that were very involved in their child's extra curricular activities, so they not only lost a child they lost that social circle.
I don't reply to those posts because although I do feel for the pain they are going though I cannot relate.
Although I miss my DD, that is over shadowed by my excitment that she is starting this new journey in her life and also a bit of excitement that after 24 years I have worked my way out of that "job".
What are your thoughts on the matter?
