How can I be lonely when I have so much in my life. I have a wonderful family, a great husband and the biggest blessing of all my daughter. But still I am lonely, I don’t have the friends I used to have. You know those close friends that you text or call on a whim and joke around with. I don’t really have that, everyone is just preoccupied in there own lives. I always thought that after I had my daughter I would have this group of mommy friends that I could hang out with and we could compare ideas as to how we are handling motherhood. But that has proven to be even more difficult to attain. Sometimes you need someone else to talk to that is not your partner or family. Where do I go from here, therapy?
