Maternal Mental Health Week

This week is #MaternalMentalHealthWeek.  Bringing a child into this world is hard AF guys.  No matter which was you twist it, it has it's complete highs and complete lows. From your whole body changing, both physically, emotionally and hormonal then trying to find it's way back again.  Back to that old you.  But she isn't there anymore.  You have a new amazing identity - MOM!! With new roles, responsibilities, and a backpack full of worries the navigation process of finding myself again I found to be very hard.  I lost sight of myself.  Who I was, what I wanted, I wasn't striving towards anything.  I felt isolated, in my head, not valued or appreciated.  I went into a very dark place in my life.  But that happy full of life girl was still in there.  Begging to come back.  So I went to therapy, and read like a million self help books (and still do to this day), leaned on my husband harder, and reached out to family and friends for support. And now, I get to honor of telling my story.  Because I am so much stronger from it.  I feel empowered from it.  I've learned so much and love myself so deeply that it enables me to love the ones around me - even deeper ❤️
