Hi Lorraine, I think us mothers beat ourselves up constantly , and not just the gambling ones of us.
I feel guilty if my son does poorly in an exam because I did not apply some pressure. I feel guilty if he is low because I am applying too much pressure. It’s always guilt!!
I think our gambling, and the shame we carry with us means we feel guilty for those things completely outside our control also..we find it hard to accept that sometimes our best is good enough.
I’m so glad you are back posting. The house move sounds like a great fresh new start. Having less stuff can often feel like less of a burden.
I will be praying your sons finances work out.
Its onwards and upwards Lorraine!
