The thing no one likes to talk about...
Depression is real.
Post-Partum depression is real.
Stay at home mom depression is real.
Nobody likes to talk about these things. I feel like it was touched on while I was pregnant but, not really TALKED about. My pregnancy was good physically but, emotionally and mentally, it was not the best. I lost a lot of support. Friends ditched me. Family abandoned me. I had people but, I lost a lot of people that I thought would always be there.
So, after I had my baby I fell into a really dark place. A place I’ve never been before. As the months went on, it was really up and down...mostly down. I felt like I was failing myself. However, I fought every day to not fail my daughter. I didn’t want to go anywhere, talk to anyone…barely wanted to shower, let alone wash my hair.
I began meditating. Forcing myself out the bed…the house. Working on problems that could be solved…one problem at a time. We as humans tend to overwhelm ourselves and worry about a million things at once. I had to tell myself to stop worrying because, I can only handle one thing at a time, no matter the importance. I live by this now and that life is a Journey. We’re on a long road and have no idea where it’s going to take us.
No matter how much we plan, try to redirect or get knocked down along the way, we are on a journey and we have to Embrace it.
Until next time xoxo
