Talking about irresponsible fathers, sperm donors or whatever name we choose to give them and forgiveness, it is not really easy to do as it is being said.
Thinking about my own childhood till now, I’ve only been with both parents at the same time and under the same roof just once in my entire life.
Initially, I would be emotional when others are talking about their parents, dads, and families but I got to realize I don’t really need the emotional breakdown.
I get the strength to move on whenever I remember there’s really no one to call my family – a dad.
All I’ve got is my mum and my elder brother
Now, about all the struggles, hustles, hassles, challenges and other things we’ve been through and still going through without him.
What mum has faced and still facing, how his promises have put us into serious trouble and disgrace, mum is currently facing one now.
The emotional, psychological and financial torture we are going through solely because of his irresponsibility and how I’ll stand tall someday to tell him “I’ve forgiven you”.
It is really easier to think than to say.
Still waiting for that day and just hoping it won’t be too late.
Still coming back to share the full story here someday, somehow.
Kudos to all those single mothers out there who despite their current situation are still standing strong for their children.
