This world was not made for single moms and it's driving me nuts!!!
I'm 21 and I have a 2 1/2 year old son named Mason and his father has been out of the picture since I was only 2 months along with him. Long story short, I left an abusive relationship and moved back in with my folks when I was still pregnant. Fast forward almost 3 years and I'm still living with my folks.
I don't know if it's my own pride or being a single mom that's doing it to me, but it kills me to not be able to provide for Mason enough to live on our own. That's not to say I'm ungrateful to my folks, who have been there for me the whole time and are awesome grandparents to Mason, and my little brother, who is a great uncle. I'm just saying that I'm eventually gonna have to move out on my own.
I've had to quit my last job because of not enough hours for me to feel it was worth it to drive the whole 30 minutes to work for only a few hours work. Now I'm unemployed and feel like I'm gonna have to accept a low paying job because there's nothing else out there.
If I had it my way, I'd be a stay at home single mom, but we all know that could never happen huh?
I have been considering looking into online colleges, but have no clue what to get into.
I know I'm not the only single parent out there with frustrations like this, I'm just venting lol...
