Single Mother Survival Guide

Becoming a single mum is one of the most daunting and overwhelming life changes someone will ever go through. Whether you are pregnant or have teenagers, you will most likely be confused and struggling with what to do next. I became a single mother in 2013 when my daughter was just a few months old, and it has been a challenging but rewarding journey ever since. This Podcast (and the website www.singlemothersurvivalguide.com) was created to assist newly single mothers in all things they may need to know about. SO WHAT IS THE SINGLE MOTHER SURVIVAL GUIDE PODCAST ABOUT? A Podcast for single mums, made by a single mum… The Single Mother Survival Guide Podcast includes a mixture of me babbling about single mums business, and interviews and discussions with different people and experts about different topics. First off the ranks this includes an interview with a Wills and Estate lawyer which contains everything YOU need to know about getting a Will done, an interview with a financial adviser on everyday money management, savings, spending and so forth, an interview with an online security expert so that YOU know how to keep yourself secure online, an open interview with a domestic violence survivor and advocate, and another interview with a financial adviser on everything to do with insurance, and what you should think about getting insured to ensure the financial safety for you and your kids. Coming up after that I have chats with people including parenting experts, family lawyers, and a life coach. I also chat about the social stigma of being a single mum, single parent travel, everyday tips to make YOUR life easier, dating, personal budgeting, resources out there to help YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN, child support, domestic violence, successful co-parenting, advantages to being a single mum, and the list goes on…

In this episode, single mum Jenny shares Part 2 of her story.  

**Please note this episode and topic may act as a trigger for some people, and this episode is not suitable to listen to within earshot of children.**

In the last episode (Episode 273 - Part 1), Jenny talked about what life was like growing up with an alcoholic father and the sexual abuse she received from her father starting at the age of 9, and how she was betrayed by her own mother to protect her father. She shared how she overcame and thrived after sexual abuse. 

In this episode, Jenny talks about her two marriages and touches on life as a single mum raising two daughters after getting divorced.

In this episode, she also shared: 

  • how she fell head over heels and married her first husband,
  • what it was like dealing with her in-laws after they found out about her traumatic childhood,
  • how both of her husbands coped with her traumatic childhood,
  • how she gave in to her first husband's fantasies about sleeping with other men, which resulted in an unexpected pregnancy,
  • the resentment she felt towards her first husband after he convinced her to terminate the pregnancy,
  • the break up of her first marriage,
  • going from having everything to having nothing,
  • how the relationship with her second husband started,
  • dealing with her second husband's drinking and depression which ultimately resulted in resentment and resurfacing of her childhood traumas,
  • choosing to stay in the relationship for the children,
  • how she chose not to settle and free herself from a loveless marriage and thrive as a single mum,
  • and so much more!

Stay tuned for Part 3 that drops next week.
