This is probably the fifth or sixth time I have tried to start a blog. It seemed so simple when we were younger, writing just about anything and everything without a care in the world. Now I worry about content, grammar, and whether my posts would be interesting enough to garner readership.
Then I remember that I am doing this because I love writing, so this blog will be used to share my experiences as I delve into a whole new world of motherhood. More importantly, I want to create a platform that can help build awareness of something that I feel is very much neglected – mental health, especially a mother’s.
I have always been a very private person (at least when I entered adulthood). So to showcase my life like this is a big step for me. Facebook and Instagram doesn’t count because my accounts are private and I am only friends with people who are..well, friends.
I am extremely nervous but also excited to begin this journey as the persona of MotherAnxious, a name I felt was befitting because I am an extremely anxious mother learning to cope with and embrace my anxiety. So here goes, everyone. To successes, failures, and most importantly, the lessons we learn along the way. I hope you enjoy reading this blog as much as I enjoy writing and sharing it with you 🙂
