As a mom I have come along a lot of struggles in my life. I have many questions I have had answered and just life in general has been hard. As a child I had a horrific accident that would forever change my life and perspective. I keep having to tell myself overtime I get jealous of someone else life or success. I am not you or them, I am myself I have my own life and it can’t be compared to others.
Raising kids can be hard specially on a budget or without any help. Overtime I did seek help or made a excuse for something I was always met with ” So so can do this while raising a child, So so went to college. The only thing I want to do is scream in their face I am not you or them, I am me.
Just because a single mother who lives down the street can find a job no problem, doesn’t mean I will. We are different people, different skills. I am a bit shy, she is not.
Now that my kids are older and I am actively looking looking for a job as well as a career goal, I am once again met with this fate. Well your neighbor has found a job and the girl down the street has a career. Just because someone else has something doesn’t mean it’s just that easy for the next person.
Every person is different. Different skills, body language, and personalities.
*** I wrote this as a reminder to people that not everyone has the same opportunities and instead of comparing them to others you should just encourage them to keep trying.
