I live with my partner of 4+ yrs which is the father of my 1 1/2 yr old. We are not married, which is a tiny bit bothering. I constantly catch myself falling in to these small depression clouds that totally take over my days. I feel as if I get too involved in helping others and lose focus of myself as a woman. I have always been overly helpful to my partner and am now beginning to see I have created a growing problem. I pretty much molded myself to do everything for him with intentions of being sweet. This in return has created a large amount of responsibility upon me. I become very doubtful at times of my decisions of staying in a relationship because I get so insecure due to being burned in the past. I am slowly letting myself crumble and my bf is not so helpful. He just doesn't get my gray sky days. I love my daughter deeply and want to make more time for her but it is so hard when I cant even get a grasp of myself. Moms, What do you guys do to re-focus on your life, success, Self Esteem ( I get so paranoid about betrayal..... how to avoid the thoughts of it????), mental strength in yourselves?
