I've been feeling really confused about a few things lately... I'm not sure about these things...
1- Is there a way to feel a little more attractive while pregnant and am I going to be single for a long time?
My self-esteem has raised a lot since being pregnant strangely enough but I can't seem to think that I will be single for a long time because I have a kid. I know my body isn't going to be the same as before and I'm worried that having a child will scare people away. Especially, having a child so young. I'm also really worried that I will find the "wrong guy" and it will take a toll on my little girl over time. I want something committed but I know it's a lot to ask at such a young age.
2- Should I move out with friends or stay at home where I don't need to pay rent?
I'm staying at my Dad's house (he's only here 3/4 days a week) with my little sister (15) and best friend. I pretty much run the house (cook, clean, do groceries ect), which I don't mind because I've always been quite independent. This house needs a lot of work, and is hard to maintain but it can be done. I don't pay rent and Dad pays for the bills, I help out with groceries.
My friends mum is offering to pay bond and sign a lease so my friend and I can get a place and a fresh start.
I like the idea of having our own place but I'm only on Centrelink and don't think I can afford much when living out of home, I'm a bit worried about leaving my little sister behind too sad I am considering waiting until I can get a government housing place to move out from Dad's.
I'm just not sure of which is the better option at the moment? Is it easier living with parents the first few months?
