I’m new here. Lately I’ve been feeling like I hate being

I’m new here. Lately I’ve been feeling like I hate being a mom. His dad is in his life but he does the bare minimum leaving me with the bulk of the responsibilities. I hate that I have to deal with the emotional burden of being in this alone. I hate the tantrums, I hate that most of my life has to be put on hold and I’m always considered last in my own life. I don’t want to feel this way but I always remember how happy I was when I had no child. I don’t want my son to have to live his life with a mom who resents him. I love him, I really do. Just everything else that comes with being a parent that really overwhelms me right now. Do you have any advise for me if you’ve gone through something similar

What would help Lex? More help, parenting classes, putting him in day care?
Momming is hard, really hard and we all have our share of doubts and resentment.

Dear Lex31,

I am so sorry that you are having a tough time. Parenting can be hard enough when both parents are there. I can see where being alone and trying to do this job could be overwhelming but the good news is there is lots of help out there. Here is a list at https://bit.ly/2Zl3F4o you can check out for resources. For most folks it is good news that this usually gets easier as the child gets older. I am praying for you and your precious little one. Please ask for help. God bless you and your little one. PS you might need to talk with your doctor also they might be able to help or guide you to some help.
