You are a true heroine | BiographyFlash
Being a mother is a difficult thing, but being a single mother is the hardest thing in the world.
You find yourself all alone with a lot of emotional pain that you have to deal with and a child who needs you more than ever.
And every day you find yourself crying because life has been so unfair to you, but you have these two bright eyes looking at you and asking if you’re okay.
So you stand up, summon the last bit of strength you have in you, and tell your child that Mommy is okay and that you’re not crying – but something catches your eye.
You lie to your child – you can’t believe your own lie – but you don’t want to hurt them because you don’t want them to suffer just like you did.
You don’t want him to miss his father figure, so you always go the extra mile to make up for the love he doesn’t get from the so-called father.
Because there is a man who is his father, but your son will never call him “daddy”. Fathers don’t do this sort of thing. They don’t make mothers sad and never leave their children.
Fathers are there to tuck in their children every evening and kiss them goodnight. They come to every soccer game and are their kids’ biggest fans.
Fathers carry their children on their shoulders and make them feel like they can conquer the world because they are so tall.
Dads make children feel so special and unique. But when there is no father to do all these things, a parent must do it.
And in this case, it’s single mothers. They carry a heavy burden on their backs, but never say how difficult it is for them.
They are so good at multitasking that they do things they never thought they were capable of.
They are tired of all the work they have to do alone, but they never talk about it.
Single mothers don’t talk about the two jobs they are forced to work in order to pay the bills and the rent.

They don’t talk about all the emotional pain and love they still have inside of them, without anyone who will reciprocate it.
They pretend to be very strong women in public, but once they get home, they crumble into a million broken pieces – pieces that can’t be put back together no matter what.
And they live like that – as if everything is fine and they have a dream life.
Single mothers are true heroes, but others don’t see it. It’s easy to gossip and judge them, but if you were in their shoes, you would see that every day is a new battle.
It’s a battle for their lives and for this little creature who looks up to them, thinking they are powerful and can solve any problem.
And precisely because of those huge eyes and that smile that makes your day, you single moms fight as often as you can.
You fight to give them everything they need, to give them love, affection and guidance.
You work two jobs because you know child support isn’t enough. You just don’t want to disappoint your children any more than they already are.
You hate seeing tears in their eyes when they see other families going to the park together.
And you hate that you can’t come up with a valid reason to explain to them why your family isn’t coming home with Dad and why he isn’t here with you.
You have a big lump in your throat, you are on the verge of tears, but yet, you manage to invent something and tell your child that he will have fun with dad next time.
And with heavy legs, you crawl back to your empty house, pretending to be a superhero who always smiles and feels good.
You’re doing your best to be the best version of yourself, to be a dream mother for your child, but you know it’s harder than ever.
Then, when your child finally sleeps in your arms, you look at him and you don’t regret anything you did for him.
You don’t mind being a mom, housekeeper, doctor, psychologist, best friend, waitress and protector all at the same time.
You don’t mind doing all of this every day, 24/7, and not getting paid for your work.
You don’t even mind that you are the one making the extra effort because you know that your child will turn into a good person.
And all thanks to you, mom!
You are a true superhero and I know there is someone up there who sees all of your pain and sacrifice.
I also know that one day you will see the fruits of your labor and that you will be so proud of yourself because you achieved all this on your own, without anyone’s help. And you succeeded.
Your main project is finished and it’s absolutely perfect thanks to you, Mom. So don’t think you made mistakes because you did the best you could to make things work. Like a magician, you accomplished things that didn’t work at first.
So raise your head, be a proud woman and never let anyone make you look down.
You are more than enough!
You are worthy!
You deserve the whole world!
You know you have imperfections but they make you perfect just the way you are.
Your struggles don’t reflect on your worth, because you already know you’re more than enough, so don’t let anyone convince you otherwise.
I’m not going to lie to you and tell you it’s easy because it’s not.
This phase of your life is like a roller coaster of emotions, a wild ride whose end is unknown. But I know there is one thing that is truly worth it.
It’s worth it because of those little eyes that look at you and think you’re perfect.
It’s enough because of those little hands reaching out to protect them because they think you’re the strongest.
They think you can take over the world and the truth is you really can.
Mom, you can conquer the world with one hand while your child holds you with the other.
So, never forget that you are enough.
In fact, Mom, you are more than enough!
