My daughter has recently been bringing up questions as to why she can't see her dad, and I've been struggling not only with answers, but also with guilt and fear for her future. I grew up without a father, and trust me, I've made some pretty stupid choices in life. I don't want her to be a statistic and I don't want her to ever feel less than proud of herself. I want to be the best mom I can be, and the best person I can be, so she can strive to do the same. I'm very closed off in the emotions department and struggle to ask for help of any kind, mainly because I am stubborn and my pride prevents me from doing so. Just looking for some advice and understanding...and yes, help.
