All parenting has its challenges. And definitely no one needs to tell you that single parenting is tough.
As a single parent myself, I can tell you right now that doing it alone has additional challenges. But is single parenting do-able?
A big, YES!
I can say that to you with confidence, that I have made it this far. The journey wasn’t an easy one…but it’s all a matter of putting one foot in front of another, on a daily basis.
It’s very normal to be depressed at the beginning, but as time goes you, as a single-parent you will figure out your own rhythm.
It all starts how you view the challenges you have right in front of you.
Any challenge is surmountable – it only requires an extra dose of courage and determination. I have to mention as well, it is very important to have a very strong support group. In my case, I am truly blessed to have my parents, along with their wisdom on those dark, dark days helped me survive it through.
For many years now, not only have I survived, together with my daughters, we thrived. We have developed a loving bond that have taken us through many rough spots. It is the same bond that will see us through for the rest of our lives.
Single parenting was never a choice for me, I never planned this, ironically this is one area in my life I didn’t see coming.
But, I am happy to share that I have made it work…
…and you can too.
