I'm sorry to hear that things have been so hard. I can only imagine how difficult it would be to raise your son, go to school, and deal with your home responsibilities all at once. Do you think there might be a way you could explain to your mother how hard it is?
If you want to rant again, or talk, feel free :)
i did she just says it isnt that hard yet she was a teen mom herself and dropped out i plan to keep going she puts me down alot i dont wanna give up though i wanna have a good life an be a good mom for my son my mom wasnt really there for me we havnt had the best relationship i dont wanna be like her she was never there when i needed her i just want her to for once listen
I can see how that would be difficult. I agree with your friends in how you shouldn't listen to what your mother says, but I get how it would still get to you.
I don't really have any advice, but I can say that I think your mentality on all of this is great :) It's nice that you want to be there for your son like your mother wasn't for you. You should be proud of all that you've done.
thanks i guess just needed someone to hear me out :)
No worries. If you want to rant again, you know where to find me :)
