Growing up in a single parent home…

For now, I am just going off the top of my head on what I want to talk about on my blog.

Sadly, there are a few of us that come from broken homes and we were either raised by single mothers or single fathers.

Growing up it wasn’t the ideal situation, but my mom in particular never made me feel like I was missing out on anything.

I’m going to get real personal for a second and answer a question everyone is afraid to ask me.

No, I do not know my father, I have never met him, I don’t even know his name.

Yes I am okay with that, no I have never missed him because you can’t miss something you don’t have.

My mom never made me feel like I was missing anything because she was there for everything.

Being raised with a single mother gets a little more tough when you are older because you start to realize all that they have to do just to put food on your plate and a roof over your head.  You understand that life isn’t always as easy as they made it seem for you.

Sometimes they have to work multiple jobs just to be able to pay all of the bills.  They never explained this to us because they didn’t want us to worry, but when you get older there is only so much that they can keep quite.

Being raised by just my mother, it gave me that push to want to do better for myself and for her so that I can pay her back for everything she has given me.

Today there isn’t anything that my mom wants that I don’t give her.  If she says she want’s it she gets it.  I don’t want her to have to work so hard anymore.

It has taught me that to trust and depend on myself because I don’t need anyone to get to where I want to be in life.

My mom has taught me that hard work really does pay off, you can start with nothing and end with everything you ever dreamed of.
