I've always had a depressed personality, and I like goth and I like strange hair colors, and I like my piercings, but I feel wrong liking these things now that I'm a mommy. I feel like people look at me and automatically think I'm a bad parent because of the way I look with my choice of clothing and hair style.
So I try to hide that part of my personality, but that makes me feel depressed, and I miss being able to express myself on my outward appearance, but it hurts me to know that people think I'm unfit as a parent simply because I have a hole in my lip and I'm wearing big clunky boots and a dark outfit.
How can I get over that? I know I'm not a bad mommy, I do EVERYTHING to keep my daughter happy and healthy because she is my world and I love her so much. Anyone else have that kind of issue?
