I would say that i’m sorry this is long, but i’m really not. 🤷♀️ being a mom is tough. about a week ago i had someone say some really discouraging and mean things to me about what they believe to be my failures and shortcomings as a mother and apparently as a person, and i just couldn’t believe what i was hearing. what makes this even more disappointing was that it was from someone i had known for a while; who i thought cared about me and supported me. i just got to say this and then life will go on; to all my fellow single moms and dads out there, working their a***s off to make ends meet, to provide, to play two roles simultaneously, to be in 15 places at once, to put clothes on their kids backs, food in their stomaches and a roof over their heads... and yet still manage to keep it together. i f*****g applaud you! never let someone who has never stayed up all night with a sick child and then gone to work for 8 or 9 hours, tell you what you’re doing right or wrong. never let someone who has never had to be responsible for a child 24/7, tell you anything. why do people with no kids and no actual responsibility to anything significant always feel the need to speak on what they don’t know!? if all the bills are paid on time, if there’s food in the fridge and a roof over their heads, if they want for nothing and have everything they need; you are doing amazing! who cares if they don’t get to go on fancy vacations every year and who cares if you don’t drive the coolest car and don’t live in the nicest house on the block. who tf cares if you don’t take them to eat at the finest restaurants or buy them the latest gadgets. who cares if you can’t shower your children with material crap? shower them with love, stability and consistency!! shower them with memories and just be there for them. few things p**s me off like this issue right here.
what kind of human attempts to criticize the honest efforts of a single parent? smmfh. 🤬🤬🤬🤬 #sorrynotsorry#endrant#parenting#singleparents#singlemoms#singledads#latergram#followme#justbecause#thursday#goodnight#raisingkids#instagram#fitfam
