"Full disclaimer, I love my daughter, I’m a better woman today because of my daughter, she eats before I eat, she gets new clothes before I do, she goes to an amazing school, I bust my a*s for my daughter, there’s nothing in this world I wouldn’t do for her.
"But I hate being a single mum.

"And I can’t help but question, ‘Would I be a better mum to my daughter, would my daughter be happier if she had a father in her home?’
"And that has nothing to do with wanting to be back with her dad.
"It’s just a simple matter of I wish I was raising my daughter with a partner, I wish I wasn’t doing it alone."
Lala went on to admit she hates feeling "depleted" most days.
"I’m crabby, I’m stressed out, I don’t have time to myself, I don’t have a social life, and it’s because I’m a single mum," she sighed.
"Children aren’t meant to be raised by just mum. Children are meant to be raised in a loving household and things happen, but it still doesn’t mean that my feelings aren’t valid.
"I have a right to feel this way. So yeah, I love my daughter but I hate being a single mum.
"And I desperately wish that I was raising her with a partner."
People in the comments section were quick to weigh in, with one writing: "The BIGGEST thing I hate about being a single mom is its always our fault no matter what and it isnt fair."
"We live in a world where people are so against women it’s sick," Lala replied.
"not to mention that if you do take time for yourself – you feel guilty as hell!" another wrote.
"Another reason why I do not want kids," someone else said.
"I do not want to ever go through that. I also mentally could not take it."
"We all do, but unfortunately we don’t have a crystal ball to predict the future," another wrote.
