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!
