    Sacrifices

    Sacrifices

    There are days where I just sit down and think. Life requires a lot of sacrifices. Sometimes we fantasize about a world with less responsibility. Of course it would be ideal but things just doesn’t work in that fashion. Can I speak on the real sacrifice of being a single mom. Lack of time to take care of yourself. There are days I hide in the bathroom just for a break. It isn’t easy not having a chance to breathe. Time to myself would be amazing but mom duties calls. Giving majority of my time to little human beings can be exhausting. They will grow up to become amazing people. All of my hard work pays off. Let’s speak on the sadness sometimes. Not being able to cry in peace, wanting to lay in bed some days and never getting up. I’ve dealt with depression 10 plus years and sometimes it comes back knocking on my door. Simply getting up to cook would cause me to feel sick inside. This is the side of motherhood that never gets talked about. Days were I feel life just doesn’t have purpose. Same routine over and over can become boring. For the women that are tired and feeling unfulfilled. I understand how you feel and once felt that way. I know as women we have to make a lot of sacrifices but one day things will be better. I’m not ashamed to say there were days I wished for a better life. Asking why did I create this type of life.....
