Need support and to vent/rant….Just broke up with my fiancé of 7 years (discovered infidelity and I couldn’t get past it) Literally the week before busy season. He moved out of our home this weekend. I’m trying to not break down. But how do I deal with this heartbreak and working through busy season? I have a kid from a previous relationship (her dad died 2 years ago) and I’m also really worried about her. I will have no support from another parent. What do I do?
