There is ONE thing that has become CLEAR to me in the past 3 months.
And I have heard many mothers echo this.
Here it is: 👇
💫WE NEED TO CHANGE HOW WE TALK ABOUT THE IMPACT OF MOTHERHOOD ON IDENTITY. 💫
It’s NOT a dark shameful secret to have changed after becoming a mother.
There’s NOT much out there about how motherhood can be an EMPOWERING & TRANSFORMATIVE time for women and their identity.
Instead, identity & motherhood is often approached from the place of loss and deficit.
This makes me SO sad for all the beautiful women out there.
🍃 “I lost myself in motherhood’
🍃 “I’m not the person that I used to be”
🍃”I don’t even know myself anymore”
But, it DOES NOT need to be like that!!!
🦋 There’s NO reason that changing should feel shameful.
🦋 There’s NO reason why we shouldn’t be talking about it.
🦋 There’s NO reason why we shouldn’t be embracing this.
Having a different relationship with yourself can be profound, and can really allow us to navigate the continuing journey of being a woman & a mom with a DEEP SENSE of knowledge about the self.
👉Are you with me???
We need a different conversation around the topic of the impact of motherhood on identity.
Our culture is obsessed with predictability and having things figured out.
Unfortunately, this obsession doesn’t stop with women thinking that we should know ourselves and have ourselves figured out.
I GET IT,
It can feel distressing to realize that you’ve changed.
That the person who others think you are has changed.
It creates de-stabilization within the self and can impact relationships.
🌱 Sound familiar?
Think of this for a moment:
👉Did you think twice the last time your phone or computer prompted you to install system updates? 💻
Most likely not. 🤯
Why? Because you phone could no longer operate in its full potential running on the old version.
We all know how slow, tedious, frustrating it can feel to have an outdated device!
💫 So, mama, as opposed to operating on an old version of yourself that desperately needs an upgrade (and really working against yourself); seize this opportunity to begin your own upgrade!
