You feel out of control and even the smallest things set you off. You can’t sleep because mom guilt, racing thoughts, and paralyzing fear keep you awake at night. You knew becoming a mom would have its ups and downs, but you didn’t expect to totally lose yourself in the process. Your partner doesn’t recognize you anymore and you spend more time arguing than connecting with each other. You try to act like things are fine. You smile and say “I’m great” when people ask how you are doing, meanwhile inside you are screaming. You’ve never felt more alone, embarrassed, inadequate, and unsure of what to do next.
Take a moment to picture the mom you want to be. What is she like? Is she compassionate toward herself and others, fully engaged in life, able to feel joy, connected with her partner and children? The good news is, she already exists inside you. Right now she may feel distant, but with some support, you can work toward getting there.
