Do any of you feel like you are trapped because you don't know how to get out of a rut where you just seem stuck because you have a child?

I feel stuck, super stuck right now. I can't put  horses back into my life. I can't figure out if it is way to expensive to get a bike and a caddy to have my daughter come with me on a bike ride, let alone if i trust myself enough to take her with me, because I tend to be clumsy. 

I guess right now I just feel like Estrella (my daughter) Is running my life and I've completely lost control of anything that I want to do, and that I won't be doing what I want to before I turn into an old biddy. And then theres the want where I want to have another kid, but with my SO who is playing the father role right now, but IDK.

 I feel trapped and I want out of this damn mind set I have stuck myself in. 

HELP ME.. Or I dont know.. let me know that I'm not alone?


Sorry for the rant..

At times  I feel stuck as well. I cant find a job because most jobs demand you to work nights and weekends and I have a hard time studying at times. At times I feel like giving up on school. I had my son at 19 years old. He plays a major role in every decision I make, and being a single mom makes things ten times harder. At the end of the day we just have to remember that we have to always do whats best for our children, and make it a priority to do something for ourselves if its even once a week. I dont get to do much but I try to get my hair done so I can still feel good about myself. Being a mom is a full time job that seems never ending and as women we get caught up in being a mom that we lose ourselves. Stay stong my dear and just know that you are not alone.

I think I am way past obligated that I can't even remember if I ever felt stuck???  Um, huh, I think there are times where simple activities or outings feel challenging because of my children but so are relationships with family or significant others, I guess.  Sometimes I go through periods where things seem harder but I think it has to do with age too... Hope you feel better tomorrow. :0
