All I want to do is live. As an adult birthdays aren't suppo

All I want to do is live. As an adult birthdays aren't supposed to be a thing. I never really have money to just relax on birthday. And don't ask me what a vacation is. I'll most likely get upset because I haven't had a real vacation. I can't even get a break from motherhood. I've managed taking a break from school and work as I have needed to care for my son. Being that he's not in school due to the fact that I have to work to pay my bills. It's perfectly fine if I stay broke and not be able to pay bills or take care of my son. If I do fail then it's just what I get and it's my fault for taking bon more than I can chew. Doubters all around me. It really doesn't matter if I lose everything I worked so hard for. I've been blessed to keep up with $1000 in bills and not have a W2 job. But I've worked my butt off to make sure I had what I needed for me and my kid. I just be needing a break and I'm basically told this is what comes with being a mother so I need to just suck it up or give my son up and those are my only options. I have to work in order to pay for a babysitter. Nothing for me is really free at all. I believe that family should want to help me and understand that I just need a break sometimes. But no one will watch my son not even for one hour. I'm just over it

Yes, 4 yrs old needs hands on attention, and no you can not totally focus on school work and hold a household down, but with prayer and acceptance all things are possible, it can be done. Let it all go, accept your situation as it is and buckle down in it. You can make it, schedule your time wisely with a vision board and prayer now that's your team. Speaking from experience, May force of the Lord be with you. Hugs

@Lovelifer26 I know you disagree but still sounds like jealousy. They do not want you to be successful. Very selfish of them. Family can play such weird and hurtful mind games/power trips. they may not even be aware that they are jealous but that is what their actions say. :(
