I am a 20 year old single mom. I am figuring my life out & I'm confident on speaking on the behalf of all young mothers – it's okay. 

It's okay that I'm not sure what I want to get a career in. It's okay if I'm not sure whether I even want to go to college. It's okay if I change my career path 20 different times. It's even okay if I don't want a game plan, and the only thing I'm certain in is being a mom. Loving my child. 

My baby will always be my number one priority. But, having a detailed life plan with what-to-do's and what-not-to-do's doesn't make me any more of a mom than I am now. A bit more organized, but life is so crazy with so many up's and down's – even the most organized person will get swept away with life every now and then. 

What I do have planned is MY prerogative anyways. The beauty is, I don't have to justify my decisions/actions to anyone. Call it whatever you want too. Irresponsible. Disrespectful. "A phase." At the end of the day, when I lay down with my baby and world has quieted.. It's only me and her. Not you, me and her. 

So don't assume you know what's going on to feel a sense of importance. Definitely don't ask me what's going on if you really don't care and are going to make up your own story anyways. Don't give me that judgmental, disappointing look after I do open up like what I'm doing or reaching for STILL isn't good enough. 

I am trying. I am 20. I am a single mom. Yes, I am a mess. And it's okay.
