I am the mother of a six and a half month old daughter. I just visited my home in Texas where my best friend told me that I am losing myself and that I am not just my daughters Mom. Also, that my only conversation topic is my child... I mean is that bad?!? I get what she is saying, but what is wrong with just being a Mom? I started working from home a month before giving birth, so I don’t interact with many people. My only friend is my sister who moved up here two years after I did. In 5 years of living here I have not personally made any friends outside of my marriage. Is it just me? Have I just become an introvert in my older adult life? I am not shy nor am a social butterfly, but am I complete losing myself after having my first child six months ago?!? Please tell me that I’m not the only one. I know this isn’t postpartum related, but with my daughter in daycare now, I want to spend every minute I can with her since she is growing so fast. Sorry for the long post and the venting, I’m just not sure what to think of my best friends comment.
