Overwhelmed With Single Mom Guilt & Insecurities? Here Are 4 Tips to Help You Move Forward!

Carrying around guilt over divorce or never having a father in the home can weigh us down. Insecurities about whether or not we are "doing it right" or will we "ruin our kids" can negatively affect our parenting and relationships with our kids. Here are four tips for moving forward:

  • Tell yourself the truth. If you left a bad or abusive relationship, the home was already broken. Leaving put you all on a path to mending.
  • Stop trying to be Mom and Dad. You can't be Dad. Start working on being the best mom you were created to be.
  • Get yourself healed. The best gift I ever gave my son as a single mom was a healthy me.
  • Start enjoying your special family. Everything does not always have to be a deep teachable moment. Be a little decadent. Have blatant, unapologetic fun.

Most progress doesn't happen overnight. Take the pressure off yourself. Give yourself and your children grace, compassion. Warrior moms, no, we're not perfect. We just know we and our kids are worth it.
