Do you ever find that when you really need someone to talk to, everyone you might think of calling is either asleep, working, or busy? Or do you sometimes hesitate to complain to your friends about the challenges you face, because you think they just won't "get it?"
That's what I really appreciate about the Single Parents Forum here at About.com. There's always someone around, even on holidays, and it's a place where you can be honest about what you're facing, even when it's something you'd think twice about sharing with your family and friends.
So while you're making this renewed effort to be extra kind to yourself, stop by the forum and share your story.
