Do you all remeber that old folktale, about a small girl who is lost and tells the mayor of the town her mother is the beautiful woman in the world? They assemble all the lovely young women, but none is her mother, then they go for the ordinary etc... when finally after much searching an old crone rushes up, crying "my daughter" and the wee girl shouts out for her Mother. To a young child there Mother is always the most beautiful, the most important, and most wonderful woman in the world - even if they do shout I hate you now and then
I was recently speaking to someone else here, and I mentioned that I had also gone through hell to reach where I am. But I dont think I am the only one. I think perhaps more then the average number of people on this board have really suffered, perhaps that has made us more AP, but everyone has their own private hell. I'll always remeber this saying "Most men lead lives of quiet desperation".
In my case though, I dont regret what i have gone through, its taught me to appreciate where I am now. The difference between heaven and hell is truly a matter of perception, having seen the worst, what you have looks much better.
But to every woman here who doubts themselves, it doesnt matter what has gone before, it doesnt matter what anyone else thinks, You are the most important and most beautiful woman in the world to at least one set of eyes. Let that be enough if you can, focus on that, because your child needs you more then you need anything else.
Life may not be perfect, but everyone of us here has been blessed with the most priceless treasure anyone has ever held a child's love.

PS hope thats not too soppy, but I do honestly mean it.

Broxi - that really is such a touching post. Thank you. I can remember being little & looking at my mother & thinking that she truly was THE most beautiful woman ever....there was a magic to her that no one else had. I try to remember that when I look at Ds - that he too likely has those "eyes of love" and to him I am enough already. I don't have to be perfect - or even dressed...LOL

I also think it has been my own pain that has actually softened me. It has made me realize how much more important it is to be loving & kind & generous whenever possible. It is all that truly matters.

This. I love.
Honestly, Will has been such a challenge lately that I am going to try to remember this in the morning!

That's beautiful and sometimes specially lately it is only in her eyes that i see that unconditional love and appreciation.

Hello and welcome.
Couldnt help but be a bit touched by your post. It can be a bit lonely with a new baby and takes a bit more adjustment for the rest of the family. Hope things are better for you today, and you feel encircled by love from your whole family
