I don’t want to keep doing this anymore. I try to talk about it, but nobody rly cares and tell me to get over it. that all that matters is my kids. Obviously yes they matter most, but does that mean My mental health or feelings no longer matter? Am i bad mom for feeling so depressed? :/

    Your kids should matter to you a great deal but what should also be important is you and your internal thoughts and feelings. I hate it when people ignore you and tell you to get over it because it’s not that easy and sometimes it’s a lifelong illness. I’m here to be that one in a million voice telling you that your mental health and feelings matter. You’re feelings whatever they are, are valid and important to delve into as far as why you’re having these feelings and thoughts. You are not a bad mother for feeling these things and having these thoughts. I hope that if you say these things over and over to yourself that you’re feelings are valid to have that you’ll start to believe it cause it’s true.
