Your Value as a Single Mom
SHOW NOTES: EPISODE 006
In this episode I discuss your value as a single mom and how to not let internet trolls get you down with their negativity.
Opinionated Internet Trolls
Every single mom has a story and some of us brave enough to open up about our lives on the internet. Some moms share as a way to let go of the past and some with the hope that their story may be another moms story too. Because everyone can not open up about their struggles the same way, it get a bit annoying when you try to send a positive message to help other moms, you get slammed by opinionated internet trolls.
People who feel like unwed single mothers brought their circumstances on themselves for having their children out of wedlock. Majority of the time there opinions are often voiced out of assumption. While their words have no affect on me, I know they may have hurt other moms.
In this episode, I discuss how to not let ignorant people get to you. Just because your situation with your ex changed and left you as a single mom does not make you stupid. This community is full of brave, talented, and smart entrepreneurs. Even some moms are making sure they stick it out it school, even though it’s really hard. You’re doing the damn thing. Remember that their opinions are just that, they are not a validation of your worth/value as a person. And it sure as hell does not make you a shitty mom.
Embracing Single Motherhood
Embrace this life. Decide to be more than a number on a chart that has tried to define you and your child's future. Every single mother's journey is different. Acceptance is a very powerful tool for happiness. There will always be times of struggle and uncertainty, but you can't let that get in the way of everything else.
If you're not quite there yet, you may think I'm crazy. In the beginning, it's next to impossible to think of single motherhood as an easy or beautiful thing. Over time as you learn, grown, struggle, and persevere you start to see an upside to this new life of yours. You start to embrace single motherhood.
