Pity Party.

You know, when you’re a single parent, it’s rare that there’s someone to offer a shoulder to cry on when you desperately need it. Sure, there are friends, but they have their own lives. Yes, you have kids, but it’s not their burden to bear, OR, they’re the reason you’re so sad. Yes, you have parents, but they’re asleep.

As a single parent, there are times that when it feels like the world is caving in on you because it is literally caving in on you.

Alone is utterly alone.

There’s no tag-team.

There’s just you.

“Bootstrap yourself. Tomorrow WILL be better”, you keep repeating.

But for right now, I will cry, until I fall asleep.


Tell me. How does that make you feel?
