It can be easy to put ourselves on the back burner.
It can seem like we are doing the best for our family by making sure other’s feel good even if it means accepting unacceptable behavior towards ourself.
It can become our normal to deny our inner voice, desires and dreams because we are told we ask for too much.
But there comes a day when you look at your children and know the best thing you can do for them is respect yourself.
There comes a day when you realize you are teaching your children how adult relationships function, whether you intend to or not.
And there comes a day when you realize how strong being a mother has made you.
Leaving is not the easy route, but staying can be even riskier.
To all you single mama’s, and all you beautiful women who feel trapped, you are more resilient than you know, and you are not alone.
