    So, this is my first Friday evening as a single mom to my beautiful son (5) and Baby daughter (10months). After a pretty challenging last year I asked my kids dad to leave, not what I wanted but could no longer put up with emotional and verbal abuse. On Tuesday I asked him to leave and was roughly grabbed and thrown so I called the police… enough was enough… Although I feel a huge weight has been lifted I’m incredibly lonely already, have very little friendships left and feel as though people are not genuine, loyal or care about other human beings anymore…

    Hi Leighle,

    Sorry to hear about that, sounds very tough on you. If you feel lonely feel free to pm me for a chat anytime, always good to speak to different people. Happy to chat anytime.

    Cheers

    Hi Leighle,

    Well done for making that brave step. It is not easy, especially when you have children, to stand and say ‘enough is enough’. You should be immensely proud of yourself for doing so.

    You will not need to be on this forum for very long before you realise that there are genuine and loyal people out there. I think being a single parent is quite lonely. I made more friends in the first six months than I had in the previous six years of living here but look Friday evening and I’m on Gingerbread feeling a bit sorry for myself even though I’ve had a great day with the kids.

    We will get there xx

    Thanks so much both… 😁 I’m hopefully graduating grom uni in a couple of weeks and really keen to find a decent job to provide for my children and also have a lunch break to myself 🀣 its demanding being a parent even more so when riding solo… I joined this group as was hoping to find people in similar situations that may be genuine and in time friendships may develop… 1 day at a time I suppose

    What have you studied at Uni and any ideas what you are hoping to do? It’s good that you have a focus on what you are hoping to achieve. This site seems very friendly too so always good for moral support as yes being a single parent is hard at times. But I’m sure you will get there as Nicole said πŸ™‚

    Hiya Adam,

    BA in Youth, Communities & Families.. I’ve also completed Working with Gangs and how to train others to work with Gangs.. I think family support or school work.. the application I’m working on is for pastoral manager in a primary school. The hours are great and no work Friday’s 😜, I have the required equals just hoping and praying I could get it but if not I will find something else πŸ’ͺ😁

    That sounds very interesting. Hopefully you will be able to put that to good use and that job application is successful and if not, as you say i am sure other opportunities are out there. No working on a Friday would be a definite bonus though πŸ˜‚
