No one really understands what it is like to be a mother until you become one. You have this little person who depends on you for everything.
To say that it is overwhelming is an understatement.
You are responsible for moulding this little person that was made from your blood and flesh. This will be the biggest responsibility I will ever have.
The need to keep this little person safe from the disappointments of life is uncontrollable. Every single decision I make or don’t make effects her. The consequences of my actions don’t just effect me anymore.
Before becoming a mother I read about the unconditional love I would feel for my child. And yes I feel it. But what I did not read or did not pay attention to was the overwhelming sense of responsibility. Disappointments in my life that I accepted as just as a part of my life are no longer acceptable. My happiness or unhappiness effects her.
I want to be the role model that my daughter deserves.I don’t just want to be the best mom for her. I want to be the best of me.
