I think all anyone EVER needs is their family. I have noticed that since I pursuing things other than mommy-ing, a lot of my other relationships in life have improved. As much as I love talking about my kids all day, it's apparently not all anyone else wants to hear about LOL Now I have things to talk about in addition to telling the latest stories about my kids. It's improved my relationship with my husband, too. BUT in my case, I think I was unhealthily OBSESSED with being a mom for many years, and I needed something to focus on other than just 24/7/100% mommy. I am also a wife, a mother, a sister, a friend . . . and it took me finding my own interests to realize that. I am guessing most people don't need to do that because they are better at the whole "balance" thing. That was always the hardest part of AP for me.
