I lost myself being a mother

A mother shares a very introspective blog on why she feels that becoming a mother should not put a closure on a woman’s identity and being. She reinforces, for all mothers, the importance of keeping in touch with their own selves, their needs, their lives while balancing motherhood.

What a great piece of advice. I won't be complacent after reading your article. My son is just 3months old and I am very busy with him but it's really important to take out time for the things I love! Thank you :-)

Arunima absoluetly! Its about not losing touch with ourself whether its working in office or ones hobby! Even if someone enjoys looking after their home be it so! But dont lose yourself is the key!

Very well written Leena. Im sure this is something all moms go through at some point. But even with a career, it is difficult indeed to draw a line between your work and your family. I am a work from home mom and have no fixed work hours. I do it all in between caring for my kids. Some days are good, while others, not so great. I have realised over time that the most important thing in this whole cycle is not to lose touch with ourselves. If we meet our own expectations (realistic ones of course), we will be happy individuals, which equals to a happy mom :) Thanks for sharing your story. Im sure many moms will relate.

Rashmi other people's comments should be the least of any mothers problem. What I figured out in my different phase of life is to be able to enjoy our own company & not feel alone at any point & seriously thats empowering. The key is to be more than a mother not for anyone or money but for oneself! I am happy you could relate to what I wrote & thought it to be worth reading!

Totally relate to..... its frustrating that after givin your 100% at home ppl say what have u done just sitting at home. Its best to keep urself diverted and upgrade urself in your field.
