I’m the Mom without a Bestfriend

I’m the mom without a bestfriend.

I’m the mom without a tribe.

I’m the mom without a village.

I’m the mom who doesn’t get invited to birthdays, baby showers, weddings, mom’s night out.

I’m the mom that doesn’t have a person.

I’m the mom who spends weeks at a time never seeing another human being besides her kids and husband.

I’m the mom that doesn’t get included.

I’m the mom that doesn’t have someone to make sure I’m still hanging on.

I’m the mom on the outside looking in.

I’m the mom no one checks on.

I’m the mom that just wants a friend.

A real friend.

I’m the mom who hasn’t had a date with her husband in four years.

I’m the mom that doesn’t have someone to babysit her kids.

I’m the mom who wants someone to come over with chocolate and wine.

Someone to talk too.

I’m the mom with a phone that never receives texts or calls.

I’m the mom who reaches out.

Who tries to make plans.

Who tries to be friends.

To no avail.

I’m the mom who wonders if it’s me.

If I’m not liked.

If I did something wrong.

I’m the mom at the park alone with her kids.

I’m the mom whose kids aren’t included.

Whose kids don’t get invited.

I’m the mom who bottles everything up.

Who has to stay strong.

Who just wants to confide in someone who understands.

I’m the mom without a best friend.
