After a hard break-up, making a choice to remain celibate for a while feels like the greatest act of self-love I could choose right now.
This week I turned 41. It’s a day I thought I’d never see. I was sure I would be dead by 25 the way I was living. Homeless at 21, due to the choices I was making, I didn’t feel I had or was even worthy of any other options.
A positive co-parenting relationship is not possible if the only one parent is putting in an effort. I am unapologetically done trying to co-parent.
