And not too long ago there was a mom completely stressed out. I asked what was wrong and she told me she was stressed, her baby is 4months, and she just feels like a crappy mom. I felt a bit bad because I know the stress of being a younger mom.
I too am 19, but my son is 16mos, I go to school FT, work at the shelter and understand being overwhelmed, especially because of my job, it's an emotional strain.
Well the girl goes on to start driving me down with excuses, Baby's father is supposed to be taking care of them, never worked before, droped out of school way before she was even pregnant, and she says "It's just because Im a young mom so everything is hard for me."
idk why but that made me stop feeling bad for her. Why should I feel bad, she already felt sorry for herself. I just feel like of course your life is hard, its hard when you make excuses for why you are doing bad, instead recognize the problem and over come it. sheesh
what do you all think? She is honestly just bugging me now, everytime I see her or she talks to me its this huge pity party. I know I'm supposed to have a bigger heart I guess but there are actually people I could tend to who are trying to do well, they have stopped making excuses and are now finding solutions
