The blogger, who’s a 23-year-old single mum-of-two, said she’s often asked how she manages to do it all, while maintaining such a positive attitude.
“I don’t have the answers people, I’m still discovering them myself,” she began. “But I do believe that pain changes people, immensely.”
“I’ve grown a lot as an individual, I’ve done things I didn’t think I would ever have to. I’ve met people I never thought I needed but so thankful I have. Life took me down a path I least expected and today’s one of the days I’m left thinking ‘why’ again? ”
Gilmore admitted she has good days and bad days, but the good days are now starting to outnumber the bad days.
“You will get there,” she told her followers. “But you need to know it’s not a sprint. It’s the longest loneliest marathon you’ve ever been a part of.”
The blogger explained that as a single mum you have “people around most of the time but you still feel alone”, and while you take advice from people who “go home to their happy families” at night, you’re left wondering where it all went wrong.
“It’s just a constant sh*t fight, not to mention the effects it has on your kids which you are forever told ‘at least it happened while they’re young'”.
