I will be selling my home soon. I live with my soulmate and my mother. I have been her sole caretaker and provider for the last 25 years. We feel that now is a good time to make that break away from her. One of us is 55 and the other is 61. We want to have our own life now. Life is passing us by. Is this so wrong of us ? How do I come to terms with sitting down and telling her how I really feel? I know what she'll come back at me with. I have been seeing a clinical psyhc. to try to help me deal with all this. The guilt is over whelming. She's already said that she doesn't want to live alone. I honestly think it would be better for her to get to know others her own age. I know she won't see it that way. I just don't know what to do. I am simply beside myself.
