Find below the writing prompt by Write Tribe, that inspired this post of mine.
My submission for the prompt was –
It makes me wonder what must it be to actually be a single mother. Here, we, me and a lot of my fellow mothers, are always complaining about our husband’s involvement in raising our child. And then there are women, who do not have the luxury of choice of complaint or counsel or cajole or call when in need! They do it all themselves. They not only play the parts of both the parents but also play the more difficult part of being there for themselves – self healing and self motivation (when the shoulder they always relied on went missing).
Just wanted to shout out to all the single mothers – “You are doing a great job! Keep it up! Let no one tell you anything otherwise!”
