Ask Sis Dolly: Pregnant and alone

I tried to kill myself because the father of the child decided to leave me

I'm 21 and pregnant. . He said I've hurt him in the past. Should I let him go or fight for him because I love him?

Sis Dolly responds:

The only fight you should be having is for the health and well-being of the child you are carrying. Talk to him again and if he's willing to change his mind, and if there's a way you can make up for past hurts and commit to a future together. But you can't spend endless hours wishing you could change his mind. If he doesn't, then it's as it should be. You'll need to talk to him about the well-being and maintenance of your child. Understand that you'll have to deal with this man for long as you have a child together. Make sure he maintains his child. Finally, you must remember it is not worth killing yourself over someone else - death is final. Take care of yourself.
