Fly, Baby, Fly! Navigating the Emotional Skies of the Empty Nest
Picture this: You’ve spent the last two decades meticulously raising your children, preparing their meals, attending their recitals, and cheering them on at sports events. Then, one day, the last one flies the coop. Suddenly, you’re left with nothing but the faint echoes of their laughter, a collection of empty bedrooms, and an uncertain future.
Welcome to the “Empty Nest” club, where the conversation doesn’t revolve around diaper duty or college applications. Instead, we focus on you and how to embrace this new phase of life. At Blackbird Therapy, I specialize in helping empty nesters navigate the emotional journey that follows the departure of their children into adulthood.
Emotional Health After Takeoff: The Secret to a Smooth Flight
