Becoming a Single Mom Twice
Six years ago I birthed my second child. I was hurt that I was now having another baby from another failed relationship. I remember the feeling of rejection and abandonment when I would go to all my doctor visits alone. I hated that I was a single mom again. Having to go through the stages of childbirth by myself, made me feel unwanted and inadequate. All I can remember is being ashamed, I didn’t have hope and I never felt peace.
I would think things like; How could I make the same mistake twice? Why did I choose to have another child and I’m not married? Why did I believe a man that told me he would never leave me or hurt me? I remember wanting to get rid of my child because of all of these feelings. I just didn’t want to raise a child alone again. What do you do when you have been with a man that say’s he loves you but then you find out he is living a double life?
As I look at my life now I can say I was naive and I made irrational decision. Back then when I was going through this pain I didn’t know that my son would be one of the biggest blessings in my life, the one that brought me joy. I didn’t know that my pain of being a single mom would result in me creating a brand that will empower women to tell their truth and not be ashamed of their past.
Everything had to happen and it made me the beautiful, strong, confident woman I am today. Do you have past trauma that you still deal with and want to conquer?
