They say there your friends.... Then you have a baby n there all gone... It's lonely being a mum sometimes.

I used to have a rather big group of friends now I have 1 remaining friend and my family. I know my family will always be around for me. But it hurts how people have just dropped me because I have a child. It sometimes it feels like all I am is a mum... When I lost my friends I lost Myself. How do I get that back!

I also have lost contact with many friends and it hurts.. Make new friends, mommy friends. You didn't lose yourself, you have taken on a new role, you have been given the greatest opportunity, and that is being a mother. It can be lonely and it will be tough sometimes. What does being a good mother mean to you? Focus on that and find that person, it's in you.

But it is important to have you time too.. Leave baby with family and go out and take time doing the things you enjoyed before you were pregnant. Find playgroups in your area. They are a great support system. If you want friends to hang out with, invite some of the new mommies you meet or have a girl day with your mom, she is your greatest support system. Im sure you can find something fun to do.

Stay positive chicky. Don't dwell on what you can't change. I am here if you ever want someone to talk to.
