You Should Be Feeling Awesome As a Single Mom!

Ok, I need to rant.

’m sick of the narrative that single parents are doomed to live a life of hardship and misery, and if we have a spare moment we spend it crying about how lonely we are without a partner.

F$&@ that!

We can and deserve to strive for a life we love as much as anyone else.

We shouldn’t lower our standards.

No, we can’t do it the same way as others, but we can still get to the same place by taking a different path.

I’m finding that one of the most rebellious things I can do is love my life as a single mom.

Because that goes against the narrative.

Why is the idea of striving for anything more than survival so radical?

Don’t settle for less.

I get that if you’re at rock bottom even striving for survival can feel so overwhelming that it’s inconceivable to imagine aiming for more.

So if you’re there, by all means, take it one step at a time.

But once you’ve escaped the flames, keep going. Don’t get complacent.

Our lives don’t have to suck until we find a new partner.

By all means, if you want to get married again go for it. I do. But we still deserve to love our lives until we find that person.

Single parent survival groups are so important and valuable. But why was it so hard for me to find a community for single parents who are thriving?

I was terrified when my husband left me because I HAD NEVER HEARD A SINGLE ACCOUNT OF A DIVORCED MOM LOVING HER LIFE AS A SINGLE WOMAN.

So fellow single parents, please brag to me about how awesome your life is. I want to hear all the positivity you’ve got.

And if it’s not awesome at the moment, feel free to vent, and hopefully, find comfort in the stories of others who have been there and finally reached the light at the end of the tunnel.
