I Keep My Head Up And My Heart Strong

I am 23 years old. I am a single mother of a beautiful 4 year old boy. I had him when I was 18. Very young and lost in life. He has saved me in so many ways. So many things that I have been through have made me a strong person. In the last year or so, I have really begun to take real direction in life. I am now a full time student, I work, and take care of my son. I feel I don't get the support or recognition that I need but I know deep down that I am doing great things. I just want the best for my son. I want his life to be better than what I had. Isn't that the goal of any good mother? His father and I have a horrible relationship, he is abusive. We haven't been together for years, and his behavior is so abusive I had to get a 4 year restraining order a couple days ago. My goal is to get my son away from that loser because I want my son to have a fighting chance in life. I want him to do great things and not get caught up in a life of bull****. I feel that nobody around understands my passion for wanting the best for my son. His dad is such a loser, and full of drama I don't want my son to grow up thinking that what life is about. There is bigger and better things than that out there, and I will be dam*** if anything gets in my way to show him this. I am just venting. My son saved me, I honestly don't think I would be here if I wouldn't have had him. And now its my turn to return the favor to my little boy, and save him. Give him the life he deserves. I know I will go on to do great things in life, and ever since I got pregnant, its been me and him against the world. We just have one last major hump to get over so we can start the rest of our fabulous lives!
