About 20 months ago, after I found out I was pregnant, I was abandoned by the father of my child. My mother had passed away a month before. So, I was grieving, shocked to discover I was pregnant and devastated when I was left for another woman.
I went through my pregnancy alone, gave birth alone and am now a single mother.
While my child and I are blessed – I have a good job, Momma left me some money that has helped me buy a home, and my friends are supportive – my heart is broken.
My son’s father pays child support, but his priority is the woman he left us for.
Everyone tells me I need to be the bigger person, accept the situation and give my son a chance to know his father. I understand all of that, but I am so angry. I feel rejected and debased. I cry all the time. I try to keep a positive face for my son, but sometimes I break down.
My son’s father and his lady make fun of me and flaunt how happy they are together while I am alone raising my child.
The woman enjoys pointing out how hard I have it and how alone I am.
My son is my joy and I love him dearly, but why am I not allowed to be angry at his father and that woman? Why must I be the one who accepts the hurt and difficulty,
