I found myself, at the age of 30, mother of 2, heading into my 10th year of marriage, just feeling sad.
Staying home with my girls is a blessing, but I didn’t feel that way at the time. At all. I was in a deep state of anxiety, because the medication is supposed to work, right? Something must be very wrong with me. And my husband, he barely acknowledged me…or so I thought. After experiencing pain and hurt, and convinced that there was no way of changing things, I started to accept that I wasn’t cut out to be a mom or wife…much like my birth mother.
Then something happened.
I learned about False Truths.
Mine was “My emotional well-being relies on the acceptance of others”.
Healing began. 4 years later, I am now home schooling my girls and loving every second I spend with them, fostering children and embracing every silly, quirky part of myself.
I am a proud owner of 5 SWL shirts. It’s a super reminder to myself, but more importantly, to my daughters. At the ages of 6 and 10, they know what “So Worth Loving” means for them and for me. They are so worth loving.
It may seem like a simple, obvious thought, but after learning the hard way, I know that it’s a hard lesson to accept. It means being OK with who you are…and it’s so hard to find assurance of that in our society. Thank you SWL for your heart and message.
