We are all under the age of 26.
While I understand that unplanned pregnancy isn't uncommon these days...it was hard for me to see that so many of the people in this count either A) Aren't going to school or B) Don't seem to be pursuing their goals and dreams (because you don't necessarily HAVE to go to school to be successful).
This makes me kinda sad...
And if any of you read this, or any young parent that wasn't expecting to get pregnant but did, please know this...
YOU DON'T HAVE TO GIVE UP YOUR DREAMS!
You can still go to school and/or pursue your life goals!
While I will not sit here and say that it will be easy...It IS possible.
- Ditch the people who say "You can't do it", and surround yourself with positive people to form a system of support!
- Be responsible! - Stop smoking weed, drinking and going to the club every weekend!
- Use your resources!
- Believe in yourself.
- Work hard.
- Strive to be the best parent and person you can be!
- Succeed and give your little one someone to look up to!
Parenting is hard- married, single, planned or unplanned... BUT we CHOSE to have sex, and we CHOSE to have children, therefore it is OUR RESPONSIBILITY to be great role models for our littles and strive to give them the very best!
Let's be supportive of one another!
