Identity, what's mine now?
Choosing to be a stay at home mum, giving up a career. I guess I was prepared to deal with that. But I never thought I'd also have to learn to kope with the identity others put on me. A mum that can no longer leave the house at night? A friend that's caught up with caring for her child so she probably has no time for anything else?.
Is that who I really am now? I thought it wasn't. I thought I worked hard towards trying to still have a little of what I was before.
Someone who could still make time for things at night, sometimes. Someone who could still be a friend to another, on top of caring for a child.. Someone who could still hold conversations of topics other than babies.
Perhaps I was wrong. Perhaps I failed.
