I am a single mom of four. I have 2 boys and 2 girls who are identical twins. I've been a single mom for almost 10yrs. Mga sis, magulo ang naging buhay ko noon to the point that even some of my relatives call me "pokpok,haliparot,makati etc" because my eldest has a different father. Di na daw ako natututo sabi nila. It came to a point that sobrang hirap ng finances tapos sobrang depressed pa ko because wala akong nakakausap. I separated myself from the society kahit sa friends ko. Ang tagal kong walang kaibigan na nakausap. I was afraid na kahit sila will judge me and it'll just add up to my depression.
Dumaan ako sa point na i wasn't able to buy yung milk sa lata..laging nakabox lang ang afford ko. Kahit yung diapers tipid lalo na when I had the twins.
grabe pa ang mga pinagdaanan ko na I became too matured for my age.
Fast forward natin ang story. Through prayers, I was able to overcome everything. Okay na ko financially pero minsan kulang pa rin lalo na the 4 of them are all in school.
Prayers lang and courage to face all the trials. I had no other choice but to be strong for myself and for my kids.
Now, I can say that am okay. My eldest gets to see his dad pero since ayaw na sumama sa kanila, stop na rin ang support. My youngest son and my twins have no memory of their father. Last time na nakita sila ng father nila was during their baptistm na wala pa silang 1 year old that time.
Life was difficult. I can say that I haven't had any decent sleep in 10yrs. I have a lot to complain about pero the pain and stress vanishes when I get to see the smile on my kids faces. My kids are doing great in school. Honor students ang 3. They make me proud. Sabi ko nga sa sarili ko na baka di ako swerte sa pag-aasawa pero swerte ako sa mga anak ko.
I'm not regretting that I became a single mom and a mom at a young age but I would not wish this to happen to anyone else. The pain's not a joke. The hardships are not easy.
ROCK ON, SINGLE MOMS!
