As a single mom I have my daughter with me 50% of the year. This would have been less if I had chosen not to sell my home last year and move closer to where my daughter’s father lives. Where my daughter chose to go to high school. With that said, single mom’s need time to decompress and enjoy their time when their child is with their parent. Here are some ways to get out of mom mode and out of the four walls of your home:
I am a mom to a wonderful daughter who is part of the LGBTQ+ community. She is so outgoing and loves life in general. I am glad that she is being raised in a society, that, for the most part supports this community. While she is the typical teen, she will also give you the shirt off her back if you needed it. She is very compassionate and sensitive and at times has even reeled me back in when I go into a rant. She knows no enemy. Just pity for those who live life in fear of what they don’t understand. She understands that people may not agree with this lifestyle and that’s ok. It’s their beliefs and she doesn’t push her lifestyle on others.
I was recently speaking with a friend of mine who has health issues for certain reasons. One of them being her job. And it made me realize, this is a common thing anymore. Women are so stressed at work for either trying to keep up with home, kids and work. We try to prove we can do the job just as well as a man. Or, we are trying to make up for the fact that we are women.
