Being a single parent can be very challenging but also a rewarding experience. The sleepless night and the early mornings can be very draining but for the love of your child it is worth it. Having to take on full responsibility for your children can create great stress that you may not know how to cope with. If you are feeling like being a single parent is too much to handle I would recommend reaching out to other single parents and connecting with them. You will never know how much easier things would get if you have a support system that understands the struggles that a single parents face on a daily basis. If you don't know any other single parents, reach out to a close friend or family member, let them know the challenges that you are facing. Being open and talking to others should help you get through this tough time, you never know what words of encouragement someone may give you to help you keep moving forward. The most important thing you should do if you are really feeling down is get some spiritual counseling, prayer always worked for me. Going to a great church service can also help take away some of the frustration you may be feeling.... Always remember that you are human and you need to take some time out for you! Mommies need Me time too! If you have to put the kids to bed early and run you a hot bubble bath with some candles and some soft music... make some time for you!
