Many of you know me, but for those of you who don’t, I am a 20 year old single mother to am almost 2 year old. I got pregnant when I was 18 with my boyfriend of 6 years. Im not going to go into details about our relationship or the abuse that went on but he basically forced me to get pregnant.. NO he did not rape me, it was consensual, but anyway the point I’m trying to make is that our daughter was basically planned. When I announced my pregnancy to my parents naturally they were pissed. I expected that but I really expected them to let up and not be so angry a few month into my pregnancy. Am I crazy for wanting a little support? I really feel like the reason why I was so angry and I am still so unforgiving toward my parents is because they never really saw how happy I was to be pregnant and to be a mom. My entire life growing up I always knew I would be a mother. I love being a mom more than anything. So when my parents are constantly throwing in my face ” you can’t go out and party” or ” you ruined your future” or “your never gonna make it anywhere in life now” it really angers me because I love being a young mother. I love making sacrifices for my daughter. And even though things didn’t work out with her dad I always knew they wouldn’t I always knew the abuse would never make a strong relationship. I always knew I would be a single mother and I was okay with that. Because in my heart I know that God chose me to be a mother for a reason. I was never the type of girl to go out and party and be drunk doing drugs etc in high school. Once in awhile yeah don’t get me wrong its fun but I would take kisses and cuddles and scraped knees and Disney movies over that anyday. I really just think that my parents didn’t believe in me and I think that’s what hurts the most. I’m a successful teenage mother who lives happily with her daughter in a cute little cozy apartment that i pay for 100% on my own, and I will never let anyone tell me I’m not good enough again.
