How to start over single

Ashley - posted on 09/05/2009 ( 2 moms have responded )




I'm 21 years old and i was with my son's father for almost 8 years before we split. My son is only three and he keeps asking me why daddy doesn't want us anymore. His father chose drinking,sports and his family over us so that he could do the things his single friends and cousins without children can do. How do I basically restart my life when my son and his father were my life. I'm so hurt and confused that sometimes the anger and hurt gets in the way of proper judgment and I can't help but feel revengeful against that family. Any advice would be great.

All you can do is take it day by day and pray about it because being a single mother myself I know how hard it is to keep it together but through God all things are possible. When your baby ask that question simply explain to him that it was nothing that he did and if he wants to see his dad do your best to make it happen and know that you are keeping up your part together. The longer you hold on the worse it will be on both you and your child its gonna take some time but your gonna have to let him go. I wish you all the best and keep your head up!
