Have you felt that you don’t even know who you are anymore since becoming a mom? You are not alone.
Many moms have experienced the feeling of losing their identity.
If you have struggled with answering what’s your favorite food or what do you like to do for fun, it’s a possibility that you have lost your identity.
On this episode, I am talking to Chari about her story of losing her identity. You can listen to this episode using the player above.
Chari is a wife and a mother to 4. After having her twins she feel into the mommy zombie mode.
She spent so much time taking care of her twins that she had lost her identity.
After finding her way out of this rut she began making jewelry and selling it on Etsy.
Later she started speaking at events. And got back to her gift of poetry.
Here are the main takeaways from this episode:
- Take time for yourself. Even if it is just for 5 minutes in the day to do something only you want to do.
- If you are struggling with losing your identity because of all of the responsibilities of motherhood, as yourself:
- Who I’m I?
- What am I good at?
- How can apply my gifts?
- If you are still struggling with answering the questions, ask your friends what you are good at.
- Spend time with your friends to help you remember the things that you enjoyed before having kids.
- You find yourself by taking time for yourself.
- Journalling can help you with finding yourself.
- If you are interested in making jewelry start by searching on Youtube how to make the types of jewelry you enjoy.
