November 2019. The journey has been organic and incredible. Nothing short of magical really. It is a very lasting feeling when a single parent tells me that something I did or said changed their lives. Or that being a part of a community kept them warm. It’s joy of sharing the burden is something that I am still struggling to articulate correctly.
The need is to find mental health carers who have the emotional bandwidth to correctly empathise with a single parents struggles. One without judgement or condescendence. The endgame is to ultimately find the mental and emotional tools to thrive.
No ex-bashing, no bitching, no groupism and absolutely no one will assume the know-it-all attitude even if they are an expert. Humility is key to unlearning old patterns and learning new ones. No one is a victim here, everyone is just in need of steady ground, we all have to join hands and enable that.
