Dear single parents,
I understand the pain of doing it alone with no support system. I know it hurts when you think about the sacrifices, and you feel life is not fair.
Believe me, I also have those moments. When I say I understand, I truly mean it.
However, you must understand that while trauma isn’t your fault, healing is your responsibility.
You can’t heal from pain If you continuously visit old wounds or give life to topics that put you in a “dramatic” position where you entertain the public with your private matters. You will end up looking like the problem you are trying to solve.
One thing I have done to protect my energy and peace since I became a single parent is to stay away from things, people, and places that trigger any old wound I’m trying to heal from

The soul always knows what to do to heal itself. The challenge is how to silence the mind and be discerning.

Remember, healing is your responsibility.
