Sometimes I feel lost and alone…the love of my life left when I was pregnant with our second child. I have a 4 year old daughter who suffered greatly for the loss of her father and cant understand why he hardly ever sees her. Bubby was born in October last year…she doesn’t know her father. My heart breaks for both of them. As for me I lost my best friend the one and only person I would run to. Its been a hard 16 months and we are coping well. My oldest is seeing a counsellor to help her deal/express herself in appropriate ways instead of lashing out. Im getting used to being alone and still in turmoil about my feelings towards him. But hey, I’ve kept a roof over my children’s head, put food on their plate and clothes on their backs. My girls are without nothing. At least I could prove to everyone out there that I can do!! If I can do it so can anyone!

  • Unfortunately we can’t always rely on others. Good on you for being so strong. I wish you all the very best with your two beautiful children.


  • It’s surprising how strong you can be when faced with an awful situation


  • Great to see you’ve come through (are still coming through and learning to deal with) a really tough time in your life. Hope things keep on the up for you


  • The greatest loss is the lost time that their father can never have back. You are doing a great job and the best way to get over someone is to be doing well. If your ex sees that you have moved on then that will have an empowering effect on you. Don’t give hime the satisfaction of him knowing that you feel lost without him. The better that you are will ensure you meet someone just perfect for you in the future so don’t give up…..be the best that you can be and you will be surprised at the results.


  • Well done you, for showing that no matter how you get knocked down, you get back up again. What lucky girls you have, having a strong and loving Mummy like you. I don’t doubt that there have been times when you absolutely didn’t want to go on, or wondered how you could keep going. But somehow you found a core of strength inside you, and you should be so very proud of yourself!

    • NO1LADYDJ you always give such well thought out replies or advice.


  • thank you for the encouragement and I wish you well and happiness


  • Its been a while since you wrote this but I hope things have gotten better for you and your girls I can never understand or have respect for a parent who would turn their back on their own children and leave a pregnant partner


  • Hi i just wanted to say that i have a sister in your position. It will take strength, determination, courage, conviction and the most important love for your children to keep on going at times but you will be right. Thier is a light at the end of a bleak tunnel which may not seem very bright at times but hang in there and the love and appreciation your kids have for you will shine thru. keep them safe and just know things will get better for you and your daughters. i wish you nothing but best wishes and hang in hun it will get easier.


  • Stay strong hun. The stronger you are the stronger
    Your kids will be. It will get easier and your kids will be happy to have you to be both their parents
