The good life
I find this concept amusing. She is the type of person that has to be with someone to be “ok”. She went from her parents to my father for over 30 years and directly to my step dad for the last 10 years with absolutely no break. She is happy, very happy with her life and that makes me happy for her.
That is not who I am. I am a loner, and am happy and comfortable when I am by myself. I enjoy peace and quiet and not having to answer to anyone. Do I need companionship every once in a while? Hell yes! Do I want to someday find “the one”? Hell yes! But does it define me like it does her? NO!!
For most of my life I have done things solo and it has never bothered me. I don’t really even know any different. Very few times in my life have I had someone to help with bills or scheduling or things like that. It doesn’t bother me because I don’t know any different.
Being a single mom is no big deal to me. I never thought it would be any different. It seems like the norm to me that I have to do it all by my self. I have family that will always help when they can and I have some really great friends that would do anything for me and my daughter any time.
I think my life is the way it supposed to be right now and I am happy. And, guess what mom? I am in a happy loving relationship right now. Toots and I have each other and that is what I call a GOOD LIFE!!!
