Are we the Same After Motherhood?

The answer for me is yes and no.  Motherhood  is one of the best blessing that God can allow, but it is also one of the most self sacrificing as well.  When they say you give up some of the things you use to do, as the mother it is especially true.  Now dont get me worng, there are some women not willing to do this, so you see stress on the relationship they have with their kids.  If your a good mom, you sacrifice some of your old selfish ways such as partying regularly, you will spend time with family more, financial investments will be in the best interest of your children and you become more nurturing.  Growing in these ways cause you to change and put your needs on the back burner into you are 100% comfortable in motherhood, or have alot of help from friends and family.

I know for me personally, I am the same person as far as personal goals, wants and needs since having my daughter.  I changed because I am more giving to her, and selfless with my time. Its a struggle for some women at first, so this is where the post par-tum kicks in when you realize your life is no longer your for 18 years.  The rewards are endless though.  Unconditional love from a human you carried 9 months.  Nothing compares. They teach you about the innocence of life as well as challenge you as a mother. Whats your opinion, do you feel like you have changed since having kids, or will change when you become a mother? Thanks for reading!

  1. As soon as I found out I was pregnant I knew I needed to change and become new. I’m definitely no where near who I used to be and it’s the best thing that ever happened. I struggled with severe postpartum and even thoughts of harming my baby. But Halal Hayah, Yah brought me over and I learned to love the tough parts as much as the smooth ones.
    I can’t wait to have more!💙

    1. Yes! Its a challenge. I am past the post partum stage now, my daughter is 13 months but I do have days where I feel like my husband has more freedom than me when I am staying at home with the baby to sacrifice for her. I had it pretty bad when she was newborn because we are sleep deprived and our weight is not where we want it after baby. It took some time to get back to myself, but I can say I am there, although I do fall back into post partum time to time. It can last a while.

  2. I am a proud mother of three and must say that my kids have changed my life in many good ways – when I am multi-tasking I feel like an octopus sometimes, and I’ve surprised myself with saintly patience many a time and overall, I feel the richest woman on earth for the treasure of my children.
