When was the last time you questioned what it is to be a man?
“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better” -Maya Angelou
Well, let’s just say that it was shaping up to be a great day. My son was super happy and outgoing. We went to Costco to make a return and grab some items. Now I’m certain that Costco is a wonderland for small children however for adults with those small children we sometimes loose our sense of wonder when trying to get things done.
No spoilers here however, I did meet with a very poignant moment and had to think quickly. Perception can be either an ally or an enemy. Although I would love to have reacted a certain way I chose to instead to respond according to my own ethos.
At the end of the day you are accountable to your own choices and actions. Many people do not consider this but I believe that the single parent community is VERY conscious about this – for many reasons.
We are often scrutinized for the smallest possible infraction that we ourselves begin to question how others will see us. Sadly, this is a reality when it comes to being judged…. literally. That’s exactly what many single parents have to worry about. Whether a judge will deem you capable of being a part of your child’s life based on your responses and reactions. This doesn’t make walking “the path” any easier.
I feel for you all and would like to share with you an occurrence that happened to me recently. I’ll share with you my thoughts and feelings that go along with it. I would hope that in doing this you can feel comfortable with your own feelings and responses given a similar circumstance.
