"Move on." I'm sure you heard it more than once from well-meaning bystanders after the breakup. But what helped you may not have been anything that you had expected to help. And yet that very suggestion may be exactly what another single mom or dad needs to hear right now. So take a moment to share whatever was most helpful to you by participating in this "Readers Respond" feature.
I Spent a Lot of Time With My Friends
- I really leaned on my friends after Hank and I broke up. The whole thing was a shock to me, so I was in pretty bad shape. Plus, my daughter was only a few months old at the time. But my friends really came through for me. Sadly, I've had the chance since then to help two of them through similar situations. I guess I'm not the only one.
