Becoming A Single Parent. Hey guys, I hope you are well. In today’s post, I want to talk about becoming a single parent. I have heard many stories from women with 2 or 3 kids who have recently divorced or the other partner had left and had become a single parent. This is very heartbreaking, but it is the reality. Sadly, having children always seems to be the reason why things don’t work when you’re dating or married. It really shouldn’t be like that. In other words, if your marriage or relationship was stable before kids, then why it should end after children?
Becoming A Single Parent
Sometimes A Breakup Is A Blessing
Let’s face it, raising children is hard work, mentally and physically. A lot of things changes in your personality. You are not the same person as you were before you had children. Your insecurities and lack of confidence will grow high to a whole new level of which you nobody will ever understand.
When I was pregnant, my partner and I were very excited about it, but we hardly knew each other well enough to raise a child together. The pregnancy was too fast – I feel pregnant one month after we got together. Although we tried to work it out, there was a lot of negative energy around us, and we collapsed when I was three months pregnant.
It was very heartbreaking when we break up, but now, I am happy we broke up then. Imagine the hell I would have gone through. Sometimes it’s good to look at the positive side of a break-up. Blaming yourself and hating on the other partner is not going to help at all.
Revenge Is Sweet
Raising your children and working hard in achieving your goal is the only revenge you will ever get as a single parent. You do this by grabbing all the support that is available to you. Your ex-partner will have a lot of regrets and feel useless that he left you and his children. He might even want to be in their life. After all, he left a beautiful, already made family for someone else.
Single Parent Advice
My advice is to take a chill pill. It is a vast transitioning from having a partner to support – being all alone with children. This is why it is essential to believe in yourself and take all the right support. It will help if you put your ego and selfish attitude aside. Things are different now as you have children to be placed as a no1 priority. As long as you put your children first before anything else, you will be fine.
If you are or know anyone who may be going through that is going through a similar situation, I hope this post has helped. You have to understand that we are all humans, and we can only do our best based on experiences. Sometimes life does what life wants, and there’s nothing that can be done other than rolling with it.
I hope you enjoyed that.
