The single mothers movement... this isn’t cool, hip or fashionable and some times it feels as if it’s being portrayed as such.
It’s dark, intense, lonely as fuck.. you are accused of breaking up the family, not being grateful, crazy and many other ruthless words.
The stigma: they are single for a reason. If a person pays your bills, doesn’t cheat or beat you by all means that is more than enough... and don’t you dare complain about it to such a deserving human, or the republicans of this country.
we’ve been told to hush, sit down.. be quiet.. for any woman feeling fear to speak up at the moment, you matter. No need to rush your being, you are aloud to start at any moment but often times, especially in this age.. we marry security and attachment, we marry the gilded life. Not what we deserve.. we stay in stagnant relationships because you’re married and that means your ‘done’. It makes every day slow with a tight knot of fear in the throat.
im not sure where I’m taking this besides the fact that my inbox has been filled with women in situations parallel to mine.
Women suffering while blind men have no clue as to how hurt their partner is. How oblivious they are to the sadness in her eyes, it’s been sitting there for years... and only growing darker.
I mean how many times can you have a talk? How many times can you suggest therapy? Only to be rejected, and told to calm down, or that I’m over analyzing again.
The woman.. who hasn’t worked in years, raising children, stopped her education to be The Mother. Gave birth, woke through the nights, who was told not to worry.. and trusted that she didn’t have to... who’s credit is trash, from not keeping tabs on bills paid and not paid... and is now standing at the cliff.. single mother hood is scary. Not a break or time off.. it’s being so fucking rooted that it hurts to sprout but we do it anyways.... step forward in your vulnerability, into your pain & brokenness. Your strength lies there.
THIS SHIT HURTTTTS.. but I’m not lying to me or anyone else anymore. Currently healing. 🌸🌹🕸
