I’m a freelance relationship writer & meditation teacher.
When I lost a narcissistic and abusive boyfriend and a toxic best friend in the span of just a couple of months, I went into a free fall and hit my rock bottom. I couldn’t figure out how I’d reached a point where these were the people closest to me – and why I would let them treat me that way. And I began looking at all my past relationships.
After years of settling for abusive and otherwise toxic relationships, I got fed up. Using meditation and other tools, I got to work on healing myself, setting boundaries, and only engaging in relationships (romantic and otherwise) that bring me joy.
I want to help other single parents find the love they seek, including and going beyond romantic love. I live in Florida with my two sons, where I homeschool while solo parenting, all while surrounded by what feels like a zooful of animals.
What can I offer you?
I don’t just do this for myself – though it does help me grow and evolve as a person, too.
I do this because I want to help you. I know what it’s like to be a single parent. I know what it’s like to lose confidence in yourself, to question your abilities, to wonder if you’ll ever find love again. I know how it feels to wonder if you even want to find love again.
So I offer you several things.
I offer you hope. Hope that the love you seek is out there and that you’ll find it.
I offer you a reminder of all that love is. Because love is more than just finding a partner. It’s a bond with your kids, your parents, your siblings, and your friends. It’s sharing a meal with a neighbor, helping a homeless person find shelter for a night, and adopting a rescued animal.
I offer you my experience and the experiences of others who’ve been there and come out the other side. I, through my own stories and those of others, can help you find your way and create the life you want, even if it’s not the one you thought you’d have.
I offer you truth. Whatever I say to you, even if it seems farfetched and out of reach to you in the moment, is true. I won’t ever tell you a lie or say that you can do something you can’t. It might take time, effort, money, or more belief in yourself than you have right now, but if I say it, it’s true and you can have it, be it, find it, or believe it.
I offer you knowledge. Knowledge that you are not alone. That the path you are on has been trodden by others and you need only continue to walk it to find your way. Knowledge that will help you stay on that path, find your confidence, build your faith in yourself, and find new, constructive ways of living as a single parent.
I offer you a place to come where you belong. Where being a single parent doesn’t feel like you’re on the outside, unique, or frowned upon. We’re all single parents here – and if we’re not right now, we were at one time. I get you. I’ve got you.
