I am new to the community and would like your advice.
I am a mom with two young children (age 5 and 5 months old baby). I’ve been trying to get out of a relationship for a year now, but was unable to do it because of financial reason. I tried to work things out with the father of my children and it is just not working out. And it is taking a towed on my body. I feel helpless.
I quitted my full-time job 5 years ago so I could stayed home with my son. Since then, I was unable to get a regular full time job. Now I am working off and on with Temp agencies.
I asked myself all kind of questions. Should I stay in this relationship for the kids and ignore the my happiness. If I left, will it be worst than now? I don’t have a stable job. I have very little savings. I am just too afraid to go on my own.
