stressed out

I thought I could write this blog about how stress out I’ve been lately. I am working five days a week and going to school three days a week then being a full time mother is very hard. I am doing my hardest and only want the best for my son. No one in my family or any of my friends really understand where I’m coming from because none of them had a kid at the age of sixteen. I feel like they expect to much from me. I don’t want to let anyone down but I feel like sometimes I am. I will tell someone that I got a good grade in class and they will kind of ignore me. I just wish they would tell me that they are proud of me. I love feedback from my family but I never get it. I’m planning on staying in school, keeping my job and being the best mom I can be but its so stressful. I just wish my family understand it isn’t as easy as they think.

    My advise is that you are doing a great job. Most people when they have a child at a young age don’t even go back to school. If you are getting good grades that makes it even better. Some people just cant relate and you got to keep doing whats best for you. One day your son is going to look back and be the happiest with you and your going to get the most recognition from him. šŸ™‚

    I think you are doing a very good job! Yes, it is hard, and sometimes you just want to quit, but keep your head up. You have a son to look after and that is the most importain thing of all. Yes, Family is a big help threw this hard time, but this lesson will make you stronger than ever.

  3. I agree with what the other commentators said. What you are doing is extremely difficult. Here’s the thing: when you haven’t experienced something, it can be difficult to empathize, so give your family and friends a little slack. (I’ve had the same experience. I worked through college and grad school, and I worked while writing my book. People outside my field did not understand.) On the other hand, one thing you might do to help yourself and make friends who are in the same boat. You will find many people at Tri-C who are parents, working, and going to school. Make friends with these people. They will understand what you are going through. Good luck!
