Advice on surviving being a single divorced parent.
1. living well is truly the best revenge.
I seek to thrive not just survive and all the obstacles and the creator of obstacles can kiss my most royal African behind.
2. even in the roughest parenting moments, the missing parent is missing out.
3. get your laugh on-
so often laughter and good humor will deflect or dissipate bullshit. at least until you can get a bubble bath and cocktail.
4. learn what put you with the asshole. then forgive yourself. understanding what I wanted and needed that misled me into the relationship was so freeing. and forgiving myself for being human wanting home and hearth mistaking him for someone I could build a home and family with. forgiving me took away all of his power and gave me all of mine back.
5. strive to be indifferent.
indifferent is the opposite of love. hate is another face of love. when you are indifferent he holds no more power or influence than a stranger on the street. just another human being.
