Those kids – or young adults – who occupied their old bedrooms for the summer are heading back to college. Or maybe they are off to college for the first time, ready to embark on that new journey and independence.
Which also gives YOU independence. Nobody coming and going at all hours. No kids to cook for. Your load is lightened and your time is yours.
Sure, you will miss them. Empty Nest Syndrome is a real thing – feelings of depression, loneliness, sadness when the kids take off, either temporarily or for good. As Psychology Today notes as a way to cope and thrive: “This might be an opportune time to explore or return to hobbies, leisure activities, or career pursuits.”
