Some women have taken to social media to narrate the deep regret they feel for having become mothers.
According to them that has stalled their life.
I am a single mother of one, my child is 3+ .The issue now is I have been living in regrets of having this child.
This feeling of regret is getting so strong and overwhelming , that sometimes I just sit and start crying ,asking God to take the feeling away .
I don’t have a mother,I am not a graduate ,I live with my dad who is a single father and no sibling.No family member.
I look back at my life from before I had this child and I am full of regrets. I don’t know if other mother’s( single or married) experience it too.
Please those young girls out there who gets pregnant outside wedlock, please do well to go for that abortion , don’t be like me and wallow in regrets few years down.
I look at myself in the mirror ,the fallen breast ,the saggy tommy and the stretch marks and the pain won’t just go away.
It hurt so bad!
I am a shadow of myself. I can’t even kill myself cos there will be no one to look after my child.
I am a lonely single mother,I have even thought of just killing us both but I can’t..
All I need is encouragements .
I am falling deeper into this abyss of depression everyday. God please I am sorry..I am sorry my child.
Another man adds that he understands the womans predicament.
Would you believe me if I told you I understand exactly how you feel? The feelings of regret come because having a child has completely turned your life upside down.
I parent with my wife and still experience this in leaps and bounds…talk mire of you, a single mum.
The saddest part is…there are married women who feel like you everyday in their marital homes.
I talk to so many of them. This is why i encourage people about the importance of having true support. You will keep feeling this way.
l totally understand your situation because I was once in it 16 years ago when I was 18years old. I was raised by my father and grandmother, had no mother.
I got pregnant at 18, without any help from father or family, so I had to raise my son all by myself.
There were times when I cried and wished I didn’t have him, but I had to be strong because I knew how I felt and what I went through when my mother wasn’t there for me& trust me, keeping him was the best thing ever.
God was there for me even though I had no relationship with Him.
16 years later, I am married, went back to school, got a good job and just gave birth to my second child 5 weeks ago..
