Isolation is so easy to fall into. We get wrapped up in what is going on in our lives only to look up one day looking for a friendly face and not knowing who to call or turn to.
I know I was there…
For a very,
I felt insignificant, silly, unloved, unwanted, and the list could go on depending on the day. And you know what? The more moms I meet the more I realize it wasn’t and isn’t just me.
If you feel this way, you are not alone.
You are not insignificant.
You are not silly, unloved, or unwanted.
And I am so sorry that you are feeling all these things.
But let me encourage you that there are many people who are struggling through the same issues, so you have support!
Where can you get that support?
First off talk to your OBGYN or Midwife about how you are feeling. Be honest with them because you may need more than just talking with someone to start feeling like you again. And let me add there is no shame in asking for help!
Being a mom is tough and asking for help does not make you weak or a bad mom! You have to take care of you too! You can’t give from a well that has run dry.
Below is a list of other places that you can reach out to, to get connected with other moms.
These are just a few of the many groups out there. You can check into local churches with groups as well as Google local groups in your area.
What helped you deal with the isolation of being a mom? What would your advice be to new mommies? Let me know below!
