You Didn’t Plan For It To Be Like This
Most of us don’t plan to bring up children on our own. However circumstances can change in unforeseen ways and leave you with in a diffucult situation.
Not only do you have many more practical issues to think about, it’s difficult to not have the support of a partner. You have so much more responsibility that you might feel guilty thinking about yourself and what you need.
Balancing all of the different roles you fulfil as a parent on your own can result in emotional burnout. As a parent, you have to be an authority to your child and a supporter of their independence. An advocate of their success whilst also holding them responsible for their choices.
When it’s good, there is nothing more rewarding. When it’s bad, there are few things more painful, and you feel the absence of a partner to rely on.
You Don’t Have To Do It Alone
You are doing the best that you can, but your emotional strength is a resource that needs replenishing. Parenting is an ever-evolving role. Every stage of your child’s life comes with it’s risks and opportunities. As a parent you want them to be happy and stay away from danger.
If you are struggling, it’s not because you are a bad parent. You aren’t facing small challenges and it can be overhelming to go at it alone.
