Embrace and Own the Journey✌❤
Updated: Jan 16, 2018
As most of you know my journjey with postpartum depression has had its ups and downs, like usual journeys. Its been a lengthy one, one that is still with me. I was caught up in trying to bring my old self back. Which there is no fault in that. No. But I’ve grown to realize that I have been subconsciously creating my NEW self. Not my OLD self. But a new Domenica with a new purpose, outlook, perspective on life. I am so proud of myself. I honestly could have never anticipated this outcome. What I’ve learned is that I need to share this with women, women that might be suffering and battling with PPD. I want to show and teach them that it can be viewed as a journey, something positive and more importantly provide hope that there is an end to their trauma.
This could not be more accurate. It was hell on earth. My PPD kicked my ass. No sugar-coating it, I’d go through labour 10x over and over rather than being a prisoner in my own mind. That’s exactly how it felt. I was lost, scared, confused and trapped. I had nothing to look forward to. It was lonely. I honestly and truthfully believed that this was Motherhood. And I kept asking people, fellow Mothers and I would just get looks of confusion and pity. I was so sleep deprived that I hadn’t even noticed what was going on. I thought this was my new normal. It was hell. I went through HELL.
Call me crazy but I am so grateful for the journey I had gone through. The hurdles. The uncertainty. Yes. I am so grateful for all.of.it. I have grown into such a positive, thankful, grateful and peaceful person. Don’t get me wrong, I get pissed. I get angry with my husband. Shit happens. But for the most part? My outlook on my life has completely changed for the better and for the good. It takes time. It takes your body, mind and soul to be on the same page. It takes training, but it is so possible for each and every one of us.
There’s light at the end of the tunnel my friends. The light is there and is welcoming of all of you. Just give it time, embrace it, and live through it. You’ll make it out. ✌❤
Stay tuned for my new business venture beginning very soon…a hint? Help is coming your way. ❤❤❤
