I never wanted to be white trash

I never wanted to have a different dad for all three of my children.

I never wanted to work in a restaurant as a cashier or a waitress.

I never wanted to live in a trailer.

I never wanted to get married and then separated within 3 months.

I never wanted to live with another man while still being legally married to another.

I never wanted for my children to all have different last names.

I never wanted to have two children within 18 months of each other.

I never wanted to have sex before marriage.

I never wanted to have more than one sexual partner.

I never wanted to be overweight.

I never wanted to take pictures of my children that offended others (no shirt for my son, in just a diaper, dirty faces, etc.).

 

But I did.  We now live in a nice home in a nice neighborhood (still not a super nice home or neighborhood, but nice none the less compared to the trailer that we moved from that was practically falling apart).  I now have a fabulous job as a Patient Services Coordinator in a healthcare company.  I have grown from the "White trash" moments.  My children are happy and healthy even though we have multiple pictures in diapers, with dirty faces, etc.  Those are what some call memories.  My current SO is an outstanding father and man.... even to the two children of mine that aren't his.

Basically, all the judgements made about others can and do make them feel like crap.  I have been made to feel like complete and utter white trash.  I have been made to feel like a bad mom due to these statements and judgements.

But I also can and have thankfully moved past the petty individuals who have made these statements and have grown as a person. 

I am glad to say that I am a WONDERFUL mommy. :)

"White trash" or not.

If you don't like my honesty then go somewhere else.  Too many of you snarky ladies think you're better than everyone else and make them feel like crap.  I'm one less person you don't hold that power over.  Apparently that bothers you.
