- I believe that when I ask for help, I am an inconvenience to others.
- When my children are newborns, I believe they are a problem to be solved or a task to be accomplished.
Both of these beliefs came to the surface the other night when Scott & I were out on a date night (yay!). I want to unpack them more and connect some dots to see how they influence my actions and values. Also I want to trace where they come from and get some understanding in regards to their roots. It’s so freeing to finally figure out one of the reasons why I collapse in on myself when I feel overwhelmed instead of going to others.
And these faces?
Although I love them dearly and would sacrifice so much for them, it is a challenge for me to emotionally bond with my little bitties when they are first here. Which is gut wrenching to admit but I hope very freeing as well.
With Baby #3 very much becoming a reality in the next few weeks, these two realizations hold so much weight. I want to enjoy our babies. I want to be okay asking for help.
