Loving Myself (Anonymous)

February 7, 2011

I had 3 children, close together and it took quite the toll on both my body and my mind. I’ve struggled with depression since my oldest was born. Shes almost 5 now. It has also taken me awhile to embrace myself; my body and see it as a part of my story rather than ugly and I think I’ve finally done that. My body is amazing. It can breastfeed, birth children. My body tells a story.

~Age: 23
~Number of pregnancies and births: 3 pregnancies, 3 births
~The age of your children, or how far postpartum you are: 4.5yrs, 3yo, 19mths.

    This is the first story I have commented on, and I just wanted you to know that after seeing this site and your story I feel so so so much better. I look just like you. I have 3 little girls just about the same age as your children and I am only 22, I also struggled so hard with how I look. I was 94 pounds when I got pregnant and NEVER had weight issues until I had my 3rd baby. I think you are beautiful and wanted to thank you for sharing. Its a good feeling to know I’m not alone.

    You look great!!! I have three children and 5 stepchildren. My two youngest are 3 & 2. Fourteen months apart. Though I am very lucky to be able to stay @ home with them it can be very difficult when my husband and I have all the kids together. I might as well be a single parent. My husband works all the time to support us, and I left my job in nursing to stay home with the children. Now I have just started w

    Now I have just started to have the energy to exercise, but some days are still difficult. As women a lot of us are so hard on each other, we should love each other and think about what we can do not about she’s thinner, prettier than me. I just wish I could get that through my thick skull:)
