As a single mum, resenting your situation will make it harder for you to cope with it, and won’t help you or your children come to terms with your new lives.
I was so bogged down in thinking about myself that even when I was with the kids I wasn't focusing on them. I spent all my time on my phone talking to my friends or crying, and looking back that wasn't fair on the children.

I force myself to do things on time and keep chores under control.
