If you couldn’t have guessed it, I have actually been suffering with a small amount of postpartum depression. Add that to my anxiety and lowered self-image and self-esteem, and I’ve become a wreck.
I suggest that you also keep a confidence journal. I am, and each day I will have 3 lists:
1) Drops of Awesome–little things I did or accomplished
2) Little Moments–I have a quote in my living room that says, “Enjoy the little things in life, for someday they will be the big things.”
3) Grateful List–small blessings
