Losing myself

Sometimes I feel like people don’t see me as “me” anymore and instead see me as only my daughter’s mother. I feel like I’m losing my identity.

My son is almost 2, and between being a wife and a mother I completely relate. :/

Self development is very important! Even if it’s 10–15 minutes every morning you get up before her to just work on you.

I totally understand and I chose to go to therapy. It helped a lot.

Oh I feel the same! And it can be a struggle. My kids are older and I still feel this way. My youngest has special needs so his needs can be overwhelming at times. But I did notice a shift once the youngest was about 3. They didn’t need ME as much, they needed an adult so I would ask their dad to give me a bit more me time. That did help! But remember we are still people and are allowed to have needs! It’s not selfish to take that time!

You’re not alone in this department. So many mums feel the same. Find yourself a hobby or passion and work towards some goals. I felt the same so I decided to change it. I started my own online business that I am passionate about and lucky for me my team is a bunch of awesome mums who all felt the same. We now have a common goal we are all working towards while having fun. Best thing I have ever done. My kids still come first but i am doing something for me too x
