I was 23 when I became a mother and I was not prepared in any way, shape or form for how my life was about to change. It took its toll on me in a huge way. Five years after my first child, I became a mother again — and was still not prepared. I now had to adjust to life with two children.
When I was on maternity leave with my second child, there was a day that I will never forget and it’s a day that I hope to never relive.
This day ended with me locking myself in the bathroom. Tears streaming down my face and clutching my legs, I tried to compose myself so that I could go on and resume my life like a mother should.
