New Motherhood Wrecked Me.
But here’s what I know now.
Sometimes I look back at my time as a new mother and think it traumatized me. I know that sounds dramatic, and frankly, it is. However, when I was in it, I felt so overwhelmed and insecure that I do think there was a touch of trauma involved.
It was most likely my own trauma from childhood bubbling up in a way I’ve still yet to fully understand as a mom even 15 years in, but I do think that being a mom was really hard for me in the beginning for a lot of reasons.
