That you have kids as a single mother is not a reason to live a life without purpose. I see lots of single mothers who fell into despair just because of this. You and your kid(s) can flourish, live happily even as a single mother. There are lots of examples of people raised by single mothers and are fulfilled today. That they made it could be an inspiration for you to make it. DON’T GIVE UP ON THE SITUATION. Some of the people on my list include:
1. President Obama
He was raised by his single mom and grandparents. Obama said in a televised speech. “My father left my family when I was 2 years old, and I was raised by a single mom who had to work and who struggled at times to pay the bills and wasn’t always able to give us the things that other kids had.” Today, the story is different.
2. President Clinton
He was brought up primarily by his mom and actress Bridget Moynahan, who went through her pregnancy alone after splitting from Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
There are so many others brought up by a single mum but today are doing just fine. All these are proofs that single motherhood is not just manageable, but also an incredible gift that allows you to shape your child into a wonderful human being. The challenges will come, stand tall and firm, you will come out glorious.
