You feel out of control and even the smallest things set you off. You can't sleep because guilt, racing thoughts, and self-doubt keep you awake at night. You knew becoming a parent would have its ups and downs, but you didn’t expect to totally lose yourself in the process. You love your child more than anything, but you can't help but miss the freedom you used to have. You wonder where your old self has gone and if you will ever be able to feel relaxed, confident, and ready to face the day.
If you are carrying the mental load of anxiety, worry, and anger around with you, maybe it is time to consider making a change. How would your life look if you were not burdened by these things? Perhaps you would feel motivated to try new things, more confident in your parenting abilities, connected to your family, and more aware of your resiliency.
Support through counselling can help you navigate the changes in motherhood with confidence. I offer flexible session times both online and in-person to meet your needs as a busy mom. Visit www.rootedthistlecounselling.com to book a free consultation or your first session.
“If you don't feel like yourself right now, reach out. You are not alone in feeling this way.”
