Single Mothers vs. Foreclosure

Much is often made of how high-stakes and fast-paced today’s world is, usually in reference to the large-scale levels that cannot be ignored. The pace of the work world is much more competitive and the payoffs are larger than ever, matched only in size by the also-potentially-immense pitfalls.  Growing up, none of us could probably have ever imagined such a world was waiting for us, and we would probably have been right to assume that the world would present us with as many potential tragedies as potential triumphs. Moving from the large-scale focus to the small-scale focus, such a situation is certainly visible and at hand. This is because looking at the lives of individuals who have had to eke out an existence in the world today gives us a peek into lives filled with difficult decisions and trying moments that really and truly test our outer and inner limits alike as we try to keep the important things intact amidst our pursuit of success.

These choices have far-reaching implications that reach across the many social classes and far within individual lives. Our ideas of a traditional individual life, a traditional marriage, a traditional family, and a traditional workplace have all been challenged and changed by time and by developments that have revolutionized the way that we live. Many former standards have been overturned by the need to adapt and change to meet the standards in a fast-moving modern world. Single parenthood is now a hardly unusual phenomenon, and is in fact rather commonplace in a world where marriages are not as final or binding as before. Nevertheless, all this has not stopped single parents from working hard to secure a good life for their children.

Single mothers in particular are stirring cases to view, largely due to the inspiration we can gain from witnessing the strength they invest in making sure their children live good lives despite the challenges they face. Sending kids to school and providing for them as they try to establish their own lives and chart their futures is no easy feat for a single mother, who has numerous expenses to contend with even as she works to move her own life forward where she can.

Some of the many expenses contended with by single mothers include high-stakes expenses such as mortgages and expenses related to rental agreements, which must be dealt with in order to keep from foreclosure. These may be unfortunate outcomes but they are true realities borne by the way that the world is today. Single mothers are not always able to plan and predict every last detail, and as such expenses such as these can sneak up on them in the midst of the many considerations they are already occupied with managing. In truth, foreclosure is already a truly scary possibility for most people, but considering that their resources are often spread much more thinly and across more concerns, single mothers face it as a more likely possibility than most would. Thankfully, there are means for getting assistance that many simply are not aware of or end up taking for granted. The government and some sponsoring institutions offer assistance for single mothers at the state, local and federal levels.
