The first step is to realize everything will be alright. The world did not end, even though it may seem like yours has just come crashing down. Take a deep breath and count to ten. Then acknowledge the fact that you are in fact a normal human being going through life just like everyone around you. The world is full of single parents—look around you. Connect with someone else who is or has been a single parent and get a support system going. Having someone to share your concerns with will not only lighten the load, but will give you more options to consider when making decisions.
