Life can be scary, without parents it's a new phase. He is still around so enjoy your time with him and trust yourself at the same time. I wish you peace of mind to learn to trust in yourself and be able to cope with whatever Life throws at you. Take care!
The Question of Day asks what one word describes this point of your life. My response is: re-maturation.
I'm newly retired. I have to learn how to be a retiree. I enrolled in Medicare. I have my health insurance. It seems that I see my doctor frequently for my depression and anxiety disorder. I have to deal with these two ailments head on. I pray a lot.
