Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
The one very wonderful thing about having a baby is that you have someone who loves you no matter what... He's just happy to have you come home and pick him up and play with him. He doesn't care what color your hair is, how much you weigh--he just knows you're his mom and he loves you.
It is a lot of responsibility...but it is also very rewarding. There are trade-offs to everything in life. If you were still single, you'd have less responsibility, but you'd also be living by yourself, having to go on match.com and date a lot of gross men that you don't like, and when you were down, there'd be no one there to comfort you. There are lots of negatives to every life choice--try not to romanticize how it would be if you didn't have your child. Being alone is no fun either...
