just having a tough time right now but trying to 'think' positive.. perhaps others might like to share their positive thoughts that keep them going?
my ex might have wiped me out financially and emotionally but at the end of the day I have three amazing, clever, sweet, loving little children who tell me they love me every day. That makes up for every piece of suffering he tries to inflict on us. We may not have much money but we have each other and he can't take that away from us.

Oh I'm so sorry to hear you're having a tough time (hugs).
I just try to focus on how much happier I am and how much closer I feel to my kids. I also know myself a lot better now and am extremely proud of standing on my own two feet.
Yeah my 'family' income is less than a third of what it used to be - but I make it go so much further and I feel so powerful.
I really wish I lived around some of the other single mummies in here - would be great to have each other as support IRL.
You sound like an amazing mummy to me - and that's not because you're single - just because every post I've ever read of you makes me feel like you're kids are lucky to have you

My situation is very different to yours - but I have to make a huge effort to accept that my children are around a woman I'd rather they never knew - but I figure... If she's still around, they'll see how much their mum cared for them in spite of the circumstances.
I am an adult of separated parents - where my mum was our warrior - I never knew it nor appreciated it as a child ... But now - even though I try to maintain a relationship with my dad - he will never have a piece of my heart like my mum does.
Soldier on - you are winning ... Keep your head up for those munchkins

I was a single mum when my son was 1-4 and I had a hard time staying positive and like you all I had was my kiddo, and that alone was enough even if some nights I ate baby food! It was worth it because we are very wry close now and that's how you and your kids will be. And when they grow up they will have so much respect for the woman who single handedly raised and fed them and loved the till the cows came home more than any two parent family could!
