Don’t really know where to start . I’ve been on my own two years . Separated not divorced . Three daughters . No help from their dad … he actively ignores the kids when they reach out there is no reply .
I’m in uni doing a degree but feel like quitting . I don’t have much contact with my parents so just me . I do have friends but don’t think they want to listen to me moaning really . All my friends are in relationships and seem to have happy lives . Think I’m just feeling very sorry for myself at the moment . I’m tired trying to fit in uni an work I don’t feel like I’m doing anything properly . I just want to make a decent life for me and the kids . But feel like I’m failing .
I totally get the stress involved in doing a degree as a lone parent, I did it and it was really tough going. Many times I felt like giving up but it was worth it in the end and it will be for you too. You will be so proud of what you have achieved. It is always so easy to look at other peoples lives and how they look so happy but everyone faces challenges. Most of them we will never see. I feel lonely too, I could do with a big hug and to be held and supported. It is so challenging to keep going at times. But we are not alone. reaching out here is a good thing rather than keeping it all inside.
