Low Self Esteem after Becoming a Mom?

I’ve never met a woman who hasn’t had to deal with low self esteem at some point.

Between all the messages from the media telling us that our skin has to be flawless, our teeth pearly white, our hair voluminous and flowing… it’s easy to feel like we don’t measure up physically. On top of that, we’re expected to be smart, funny, charming, popular, a perfect hostess, a great cook, and physically fit.

And we’re supposed to be all of that after becoming a mom, too.

But there’s absolutely no way those expectations can be met.

Self esteem is ultimately about loving yourself the way you are and telling the media and anyone else with these insane expectations to f*** off.

But that’s not always easy to do and if a woman has low self esteem, becoming a mom will just amplify it times a million.

I know because this topic comes up often in our Young Moms Club private Facebook group.

That’s why I invited a good friend of mine, Regina Bailey, the CEO of Someone Cares and Author of “99 Excuses not to tell the Truth about my Teen Years” to join me in a discussion about some ways that moms (and specifically young moms) can improve their self esteem.

 

Like we said in the interview, we’d love to hear from you if you have any ways to build self esteem or if you’re currently struggling with low self esteem.
