I'm not a mom yet, but I have a couple of things I can't get over for some reason.
First, I'll talk about my situation. I'm 19 and my boyfriend is 22. I don't have any kids, but my boyfriend had a son when he was 18 with his ex. He loves his 4 year old to death and I have met the child, who happens to be a little sweet heart, but every time I think about it, I can't help but feeling inadequate or useless (there's a lot more to it but this is the only way I can explain it), and I have to quit thinking about it or I get depressed. I don't know why I feel like this, maybe it's because I can't give him what she gave him, I don't know... I just wish I knew how to get over it.
We're deeply in love and we wan't to someday have kids together, but these feelings of inferiority suppress me. After all, it's not like it'll be his "first..."
I'd greatly appreciate it if someone could help me please. I hate feeling like this and I don't want it to ruin us.
