Deconstructing The Single Mom
Being a single Mom is no easy feat. It isn’t something that anyone can understand who hasn’t been in that spot themselves. It takes being on double time, all the time. We aren’t always strong and we don’t always have our shit together. Often times we feel like we have failed and some times that feeling lasts all day long. However, we never give up and we try our best every single day. Some days, okay is all that we can be, and on those days we have to realize that okay is enough.
Single Moms Are Not Broken
Single Moms aren’t broken or desperate nor do we want anyone to feel sorry for us. However, there are a few things we rarely speak up about because if we do we are seen as attention seeking or wanting others to feel bad for us. One of those things is when a married or otherwise involved Mom says she is doing the “single Mom thing” while their husbands/child’s Dad are out of town.
We Are Single Moms Everyday
There is more to being a single Mom than only doing it on occasion. It is something we do every single day. Some single Moms don’t have the other parent to bounce ideas off nor do they have the other parent to help lighten the load. Some single Moms are that every single day without having the Dad involved at all.
