  • Everyone deserves to have a nice life, no matter what. Just because you're a mom doesn't change the fact that you are a woman. You were a woman with your own hopes and dreams and desires before kids and hubby and everything else. A lot of people forget that you are NOT just a mom or a wife, but you are YOU as well. Remember to take time for yourself and take a break. You deserve it and don't let ANYONE tell you otherwise.

  • Sometimes We don't get to choose how our lives will go.You can hope for the best. but sometimes you have to work with what you got dealt to you.Sometimes we have to get thru the tuff stuff to help someone else later down the road who is going thru the same.

  • Why wouldn't you deserve a nice life? Who would tell you anything as silly as "you don't deserve a good life?"

    Unless you murdered somebody....

  • why can't you have a nice life? Change your routine. Ask family for help. Take breaks. If you have a son then there must be a dad. Let him take over for a while. If you have a niece surely there is family who can give you a brief respite.
