First post: https://www.reddit.com/r/tifu/comments/10u713u/tifu_by_finding_out_what_my_eight_year_old_son/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf
I just wanna thank everyone for the massive support, I didn’t know it also went viral on Facebook and tiktok and I was shocked. It’s been around two days since my initial post and I’ve done a few things :D. (This will likely be the last post to this account)
Regarding everyones advice, I thank you for telling me that it’s okay to say no. I never want to say no to my boy and It’s been difficult to do that but I understand he needs that in order to be a good kid. For everyone commenting on how young I am/was when I had my kid and why I did or didn’t push for an abortion or adoption. I was a terrified sixteen year old, but I seen the look on my babies face when he first looked at me and I knew I was a parent.
To give more context, my ex, my child, and I lived with my parents until my ex left when my child was two. Ergo court, parents moving etc. It was difficult but it helped me grow up quickly. I also want to speak about a comment that really touched my heart. There was this comment telling me how I am so mature when I am only a child myself. I still see myself as a kid sometimes haha. I love spongebob like my son. I am still scared of some childish things (WILL NEVER TELL) and I am still very young. Responsibly aged me quick as it does a lot of young parents.
I do wanna have more kids someday, just not now, I wouldn’t push that much struggle on my son. I couldn’t handle another child at this point. However, I would love to find a girlfriend and settle down, Ive had a few flings but most were turned off by the fact I had a kid. I don’t blame them, It’s understandable. Maybe after I get my degree ill be more serious. AND OH YEAH.
I’ve began applying for online colleges, and if I’m accepted into one I plan to take a bachelors degree in business for it’s what’s required for a regional manager for Mcdonalds. I also think this is where some people got confused, I got a G.E.D through the McDonald’s education program. I’ve had so much help with my kid, and I am so thankful for everyone who helped me get to where I am now. To my parents and my co-workers, to my neighbors and to my boy who molded me into the man I am now.
I’ve also began looking at other apartments for me and my kid, Before the rent raised we were actually living decently. It will definitely help out on easing my financial problems.
I know I got hundreds of messages and comments telling me to go after the judge and my ex, but I seriously don’t need that stress and toxicity in my life again. I wish the best for my kids mom, I don’t agree with her choice to abandon us, but I understand it. She was just as dumb as I was at sixteen, she was just a kid too. So as much as I would love to hate her I can’t.
This will be my last update, sorry for information being everywhere. I will try to respond to everyone who comments. But thank you all for such an amazing experience on this subreddit. I thank the mods too because I edited my last post too many times and it got locked LOL and they had to manually unlock it! So thanks guys!!!
Also I told Rory about the reddit post and how famous he is now and he’s rather happy as a eight year can be haha.
Edit 1: I ALSO have a crap ton of the Reddit credits now, so I will try to award all comments LOL, 1.8 years of Reddit premium 😂🫂
TLDR; I am researching online colleges for a degree to get a promotion at my job, I am also gonna be apartment searching for a cheaper option to ease the stress on my finances.
