“My Name is More Than Mom”. Some moms have talked about losing themselves in the name mom. When asked what they do, they would answer I’m a stay at home mom. When asked about what interest they have it would be kid related. Every conversation would go back to the topic of kids and mom related conversations. How they have lost friends who can’t relate to the life of being a mom.
This topic has been in the air for some time now and many do not know how to verbalize how they feel without it going back to motherhood. Which then makes them feel guilty about bringing it up because that the exact problem.
Well it’s important that you want to take pride in all that you do and want to share in your achievements. As long as we remember that we are more than one defining thing in our lives. As we all spoke it was funny to see prior to kinds each lady could share how she defined herself differently. The different areas that defined them as a woman, wife, sister, daughter, professional and etc. Yet everything changed once children came in the picture.
So as a group we came up with some tools to assist everyone in remembering and maintaining the person they want to see all the time.
