When I first found out I was having more children outside of marriage, I was so frustrated with myself. I knew single parenting would become much harder with more children. After much prayer, meditating on the word of God and support from my mother, I got over it. It wasn’t easy but I did.

I decided to get over the shame, stop with the pity parties and own my situation. I knew if I wanted to be happy while single parenting, I had to learn to enjoy the here and now, and teach my kids to do the same.

So I started to focus more on enjoying the little moments and less on the little issues I had.

I shared this personal story of triumph with Diedre Anthony of Are Those Your Kids.

I hope it inspires you to keep going and know there’s happiness even in doing this alone.

    I’m glad you found joy in single motherhood! You sound like a very strong woman-with a gorgeous family. I hated being a single mom, but I wasn’t just single, I was alone and the relationship had been extremely abusive and I was (still am) recovering from that so it was really hard to find joy at that time.

    • Yes same here. I just glad to be happily single now and I know that eventually I will meet someone who will be great to me and my kids.

    • It can be hard but I just keep reminding myself of the positive things.
