How society accepts a divorced woman with a child: my personal experience
id: 10052871

One of the first challenges I faced after my divorce was social pressure. Some people looked at me with disapproval, as if I had chosen a difficult path for myself. The stereotypes that divorced women are not capable of supporting a family or that they are the cause of marriage breakdown are still present in our society.

It is worth noting that at first I felt shame and insecurity because of these stereotypes. However, over time, I realised that divorce was the only right decision for me and my child. I chose a healthy environment for both of us instead of staying in a toxic relationship.
Luckily, I had a supportive circle of family and friends. Their support was extremely important in the first months after the divorce. My parents helped me with childcare and my friends were always there to listen and support me.

Raising a child on your own is hard work, but extremely rewarding.

Why do we still have stereotypes about divorced women with children in our society? Are we, as a society, ready to support divorced women in their quest for a new beginning and development?
