Quoting ma ♥:" I really really do. & Like you said, I too focus more on what I do have, & our future, rather ... [snip!] ... Sorry you went through that! But sometimes the most difficult times in your life make you really appreciate EVERYTHING else."



Truth!!



I have always been pretty appreciative of the "little things". However, it was then that I had to adopt a new life moto. "My worst day is always better than someone else's best day". No matter how bad I think I have it, there is always someone out there with greater struggles than I am facing. Certainly puts things in perspective.



A friend of mine is an ER Doc in another state from me. I relied heavily on her to help me navigate thru the complications and what was going on. I broke down and cried one day and then of course had to apologize for my melt down. The words she said to me still ring in my ear "It is ok to sit on a pity potty once in a while. Just don't hang out too long or you will find yourself alone".

I completely agree with you! I've never heard that, but I love both of those sayings!



Working for public social services has really opened my eyes too. That's why I'm not quick to complain about my tough times. I mean, sure they're tough. But I'm thankful I'm not deathly ill or homeless. I've worked in the MediCal department, & now CalFresh (food stamps).. sure there are some people who are playing the system, but there are MORE people who are really struggling with getting on their feet. I feel so bad. At the end of each day, walking out of that building after 10hrs of work, exhausted, I still thank God that I'm healthy & have food to put on the table.

Im Haley. i had my daughter when i was 21 years old. Her father was emotionally and very physcially abusive. It took me a veryyy long time to get up and leave the relationship. His brother got him addicted to meth, and he beat me, cheated on me, and did other things to intimidate me- such as driving his car 90 mph and swerving telling me if i left him he would crash the car and kill me. When i was 3 months pregnant i finally got the courage to leave, called to police to press charges for domestic assault, had him escorted out of the house, and left him for good. My daughter is 6 months in this picture, but she is a year now and im working, and going to school full time. I am one damn proud single mom. Iv been to hell and back- but it gave me the best gift ever- my daughter,

Hi I'm Brittany and I'm a proud single mom to a beautiful baby boy. Being a single mom can be very frustrating and, hard financially and emotionally. Brayden's smile, and the unconditional love he has for me definitely makes up for all of that though.And I get all his snuggles and sloppy wet kisses!

I honestly believe that more people need to look outside their bubble and see the world around them for what it is worth. Often it takes a job like yours or a situation like mine for the real picture. I have always been a compassionate person but, I didn't fully grasp the gravity of why I was and WHY I should pay it forward. I just did it like going thru the motions.

I was in a very emotionally abusive realtionship with her father, until a year ago this month. I love being with her all the time, and that she gets to live with me <3
She is so sweet, I love when she always tells me she loves me, and gives me cuddles and kisses!
