I felt the need to write a vent about being a single mum.
In my case I was married with kids when I realised I just wasn’t happy and that my husband was not behaving as a father and husband should. I left, with my young children.
This has NOT now turned me into some savage, man-eating predator. News Flash: After everything I went through I am in absolutely no rush to be in another relationship. I am HAPPY to be single. I am not a threat to you and your family, I am not after your husband.
Honestly, can’t tell you how many so called friends have treated me differently since becoming a divorcee and hence single. I don’t get invites to their parties or nights out because they are in couples. Are they scared of me or are they scared getting divorced is contagious I wonder? I don’t carry the divorce gene and I can guarantee after being cheated on, I am not about to do that to anyone else. I’m still me, I was still your friend.
I truly hope you never have to go through what I did and then the isolation I felt for not being in a couple. Oh, and before anyone adds is it because they were friends with your ex, they weren’t, they couldn’t stand him so no one is in touch with him.
