Day 16, Thursday: Something difficult about your "lot in life" and how you're working to overcome it
I'm not really one to complain, and quite frankly I don't have much to complain about; the only thing I can think of is the fact that I grew up in pretty much a one-parent household.
Because of this, I kind of have a negative opinion of the fatherly role.
I fully believe that a child can be raised in a loving, healthy one-parent environment.
You might be thinking, "Why is that a problem? I don't see anything difficult about that."
The difficult part is overcoming those feelings when trying to plan for my future.
Quite honestly, I would be perfectly content being a single mom, because I know it can be done and it can be done well. How will I be able to cope with having to share my children and the parental roles? Will I ever be able to hear "She's a daddy's girl," or "He looks just like his dad" without cringing?
I honestly don't know how to overcome these feelings; luckily, I don't have to do it anytime soon.
