I'm 24 and a single mom of a 5 year old and a 3 year old. No parents or other family or friends for help. First Let me say I love my children to death and cherish them with all my heart and do my very best to put there needs first. I have just been having a a feeling of I'm not sure what. Of course I'm not where I think I could have been had I not made bad choices and stayed in college and I feel restricted to fix my life now since I do have kids. I can work but only certain hours because of child care and school will be difficult since i have little free time after a work day. I often feel a sense dread or unhappiness every day like I'm serving some sort of sentence instead of joy or peace about my life. Again I love them and I do my mom job well but I feel so lost and I can't find my way and this sense of regret or dread just makes it worst. I feel like I have just made a mess of my life and don't have the guidance or support to accept what I can't change or direction to change what I can. I just sit everyday filled with regret and coulda woulda shoulda. Any advice?
