Ive had my fill this week of people commenting on the fact that they would never consider emmigrating as they couldnt leave their family as if therefore im not that bothered about mine! Im extremely close to my family and they mean the world to me but feel im constantly being judged as selfish for leaving them. Im a mum and therefore my family unit is my proirity which i thought would need no explanation but apparently not! Im sure you guys have all had similar comments but how do you answer that without offending them. What i want to say is that im putting my kids above my parents and siblings but then thats like saying they dont put their kids first.
Feel like a need a little handbook with a list of polite but to the point comebacks for all the opinions of everyone else!
i love my family more that anything but i dont want to spend life in a rut, i want to experience things, do something different and exciting and show my kids how life can be with hard work and determination.
Feel sometimes like ive no one to talk to as no one seems to understand!
