Freelancing while single and alone is probably one of the most challenging careers to do, and people who are doing exactly this don’t get enough credit. Sure, the lives of little tiny humans don’t rest in your hands, but it’s a different kind of challenge. One where you can’t rely on your spouse’s income when work dries up. One where you’re sick but you still have to figure out what to eat when you can barely stand up let alone drive to the store. Luckily you can manage to cook some eggs, but you still have to not pass out while making said eggs. One where you’re sick but you’re on your own for healthcare and will probably lose coverage if the Republicans get their way. One where you realize if you knocked yourself unconscious from an unfortunate accident, nobody will discover your lifeless body for another 6 days. One where you’re walking by yourself and wonder if you were kidnapped right now, how long until somebody noticed. One where you have to find the motivation to keep going when the last thing you want to do is keep going. Creativity puts so much doubt in your head when things aren’t going right. There’s nobody around to cheer you on. There’s nobody around telling you it’s going to be ok. One time I asked Siri for advice and she couldn’t/wouldn’t help me. It’s only you, yourself, and, well, you. This is the challenge I face every day. I’m not pretending other lifestyles are less challenging, and some of you will chime in and tell me exactly how wrong I am because I don’t have kids. And in some aspects I do and will never deny that, but it doesn’t make my feelings any less valid when the crushing loneliness takes your breathe away.
