Do You Ever Feel Alone?

A woman holding a toddler on the beach.Do you ever feel alone as a mom?

Whether you are a single mom or a married mom,

an adoption mom, biological mom, or a foster mom,

a mom who had a c-section or a mom who gave birth naturally,

a mom who breastfed or a mom who bottle-fed,

a mom who rocked her baby to sleep each evening or a mom who believed in sleep training,

a mom who suffered from postpartum or a mom who didn’t,

a mom with anxiety or a mom who doesn’t worry,

a mom taking medication to help with the worry or a mom who doesn’t and a short walk is all she needs,

a mom who homeschools or a mom who drops off at school.

No matter what type of mom you are, it’s inevitable we will feel alone at some point in time.

Alone in our decisions.

Alone in questioning if we are doing the right thing.

Alone in wondering if we are the only mom going through this.

Alone in our self-doubt even though we are listening to our intuition.

Alone, soaking in all of the emotions a mom endures.

So friends, reach out to another mom. A mom who you may be wondering about. But wondering isn’t reaching out. Reach out to her today.

She may need your text, your call, or your hug.

Support those on this journey with you.

Because whatever kind of mom you are, we all have one thing in common, we are all moms who love our children fiercely. Reach out. You never know when you’ll need another mom to remind you that you are not alone.
