I left my daughter's father over 2 months ago, and although I know it was the best decision I could make for myself, I just hope that my happiness reflects onto my daughter. I know its still new, and she's only 1, but I am filled with all these fears of her being angry with me about it. What will I say when she first asks? And then asks again when she's older? How will she feel when she finds out that most of her friends' parents are together and hers aren't?
Her father is bitter, but also very immature. And I worry that if she goes to him 1st asking about it, that he will make me out to be the bad guy and try to turn her against me.
I'm sure all these feelings and fears are normal, but it will help greatly to hear other single moms experiencing the same thing
