Re: afraid to be a single mom

She said I can stay as long as I need. So stressful. I'm just happy I have my baby in my arms

Re: afraid to be a single mom

hun, you can be a single mom and there are plenty of people who wont judge you. what we would say is, if you stayed in a bad or abusive relationship, then your child will see that and learn.
I raised kids on my own and altho I missed having some help, I LOVED being alone and doing things my way and only having to rely on me vs waiting for someone to decide to help. I too left an abusive man who was also an alcoholic.
so glad its done. once I got away from the negative, all these great things kept happening to me

walk away, stay at your moms, get state assistance so you can get on your feet and take care of you baby. you can do it !

How is your relationship with her can you settle in for a bit?


Document with dates/times, as much detail as possible.

Re: afraid to be a single mom

My mother left an abusive marriage. She had 3 children and was pregnant with her fourth. I was only 3 at the time. I have never resented her for leaving my dad. My only question was why she had waited so long.

I think the judgement comes from people feeling like no matter how bad it gets you just keep making excuses and refuse to see the reality.But clearly that isn't the case anymore and I think everyone wants nothing but the best for you and your ds.

Which is sad because then it takes away the support that can help the innocent party leave the bad situation.

I agree I was only pointing it out so the op understood where it was coming from and why she wouldn't have to worry about it anymore.

Op I have been praying for you and your son! I am so happy you are at your moms. You are being what we call in our family a GWIC a gracious woman in control.

You can do this. Although you feel scared to be a single mom now it should feel more scary to stay with a man that does what your SO was doing.

Also like others have said you should set an example to your son so he doesn't see that abuse/ horrible treatment.

STAY STRONG NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES HE APOLOGIZES.

Hugs and prayers
