Moms out there, I need your help! I’m starting to come face-to-face with a depressing reality. Outside of being a mom, I don’t know what I like to do, what I want to do, what my style is, or even where to start. I feel so lost! I wish I would’ve known myself more before having my baby. I wish I would’ve taken more risks and pursued more things outside of my comfort zone before becoming a mom because now I feel like I can’t.
Have any of you moms out there been through this? What helped for you? I love being a SAHM, I don’t think that the solution is for me to put her in daycare and go back to work. But I feel like there is something else that could be implemented to help me begin going through these mental and emotional blocks that I feel I have. I feel like my hair, skin, and makeup don’t even reflect me anymore. I feel like I’m putting out there a version of me that seems half put together and like I’m in survival mode. Now that my daughter is almost 8 months old, it’s definitely more than time to put some effort into myself so that I can be a good example for my daughter as someone who is sure of herself and confident instead of apologetic when entering a room.
I can’t wait to hear from you all! Thanks in advance for your feedback!
