The Sacrifice of Identity for Motherhood

As a new mother, it's easy to get lost in the demands of parenthood and lose touch with your true self. But sacrificing your identity doesn't have to be the only path. Join me on a journey of self discovery and motherhood.Many women feel an immense pressure to be the perfect mother, which often means letting go of their hobbies, interests, and careers. But it's possible to be a great mom and maintain your own identity. Let me show you how. 

Ive been a mom for 9 years now its true there manual on this job.Being a mother was a shock to my system. I felt like everything had changed overnight.I worried if I was doing everything right. Was I giving my baby the best possible life? Was I capable?Despite my insecurities, I couldn't help but feel a rush of pride when I looked at my baby. I had brought this incredible human being into the world.

When I first became a mom, I thought I had to cut off certain parts of myself to be a good parent. But I soon realized that wasn't the case. It's

possible to maintain your sense of self and be the best mom possible.

Hobbies

Don't give up the hobbies you love just because you're a mom. Finding time for yourself can help you be a better parent in the long run.



Career

Being a mom doesn't mean giving up on your career goals. You can be a successful professional and a wonderful mother at the same time.

Social Life

Having a social life is important for everyone, moms included. Don't feel guilty for taking a night out with friends to recharge and have fun.

1. Self-Discovery

Take time to get to know who you are now that you're a mom. Priorities may have shifted, but that doesn't mean you've lost yourself.

2. Prioritization

Learn to prioritize what's most important to you and what's most important for your child. You don't have to sacrifice everything for motherhood.

3. Time Management

Getting things done with a baby in tow requires a whole new set of skills. Mastering time management can help you maximize productivity and make the most of every moment.

Being a mom doesn't have to mean sacrificing your identity. By embracing your true self and prioritizing what's important, you can be the best mother possible.

before cancer.....

Before my breast cancer diagnosis, I was incredibly shallow. I was obsessed with my appearance and always striving to live up to the model image I had created for myself. I even dreamed of posing for Playboy one day. But after a double mastectomy, I am now so self-conscious that I can hardly recognize myself. It took me almost a month to look down at my chest after the surgery. I cried and cried for hours in the bathroom, wondering how this could be happening to me. I had always been so confident in my body, and now I felt like a stranger in my own skin. As a mother, I struggled with how to teach my daughter to be confident when I was struggling so much myself. How could I tell her to love herself when I didn't even recognize myself anymore? I was grateful for my surgeon's skilled hands and for getting the cancer out, but I hated the results. When people say that a mastectomy is not a boob job, they are right. The scars and the fact that I will never have sensation again at 34
