Need To Stay Strong
rough damn time mate , so sorry.
been through a lot of it in variation, no lesbians but an om . Could've gotten fuull custody but my ex was still being a good mum and l so l didn't wanna deprive my daughter of her mother so l kept to us both coming and going and wkends and stuff.
l'm sorry l can't offer much help but l would say one thing , your doing a beautiful job with your daughter and if it was me l'd consider it an honor , money or not, outside life or not ,being able to raise our kids is and absolute privilege.
l often had my daughter and all her crew because the ex wouldn't have them , it was just me and them for wks on end sometimes and we had a ball.
same as you every cent went to them for food and petrol and stuff to run them around for a good time or saved for the weekends when my daughter came so that l could look after her and take her somehwere.
l know your sitch is different and worse financially and coping full time on your own but your doin great mate , an amazing job , give yourself a pat n the back eh.
And , l believe that god things come to those who sacrifice for such an important cause and eventually good things will come your way through what your doing.
don't worry yourself about the social side either , things will come there in time to you just watch.
and soon you'll be dropping her of to school and have more free time and hey all the single mums dropping there's off will be admiring you too, could be worse eh , l know your probably not even thinking women right now but hey in the future , a single dad with full custody , man they'll be tripping over themselves haha.
anyway , soldier on eh , your doing amazing , just hang in there for your girl and who knows what's around the corner.
