8/10 My heart will eternally beat for this one.💗 Being a mom felt very natural for me but the emotions that came with it didn't. I suppose experience is one way of learning what you might expect. And, it certainly doesn't happen to all new moms; 1 in 10 new moms experience PPD, but that's just it. Social media is a constant flaunt of possessions, perfections, and popularity votes, emotional carelessness, fake news and clickbait, and advertising for cheap gimmicks from China. We shouldn't be sharing that crap. We should be using it to spread more awareness, help people, and drive our modern day humanity to love and healing over spreading hate with your emotional insecurities. Ding ding. Time to check ego at the door or keep the lies you tell yourselves to your bathroom mirror when you're home alone. *
Anyhow, we don't often hear about the negative, the sadness, the hormonal peaks and quick drops, the isolation in the first year, maybe well into the second or third year of motherhood, if you don't reach out for help. Anyways - this is part of my attempt to spread some awareness on postpartum depression and make positive use out of social media.
So ask for help. No matter how defeated you feel, it will get better. Sending out love to all the moms today who feel they are alone in their internal battles. 😘
