For Those Who Struggle On Mother’s Day

 

For those who struggle on Mother’s Day.

I see you.

I feel you.

I am you.

Infertility is incredibly isolating.

I’ve learned so much throughout the journey but I’ve often felt very alone.

I’ve realized that there are a lot of things I wish I could share to bridge the gap that often emerges between those with children and those of us without.

Here are just a few things I’d like to share from my own experience in the hope that it reaches someone who may benefit in the knowing. 💜

  1. If you have children, I’m happy for you.   I want only good wonderful things for you. I celebrate you.
  2. I have a good life.  There are many ways to live a fulfilling joyful life.
  3. I’m not sad all the time.  Finding gratitude within every situation is incredibly powerful.
  4. I’m not broken.  I am perfectly imperfect, just like you are.
  5. I don’t feel less than blessed.  God’s generosity is beyond comprehension.
  6. Sad things happen to good people.  Disappointment is equal opportunity for everyone.  I don’t feel punished.
  7. My path is my own. It’s up to me to create a meaningful life.
  8. Some holidays do make me sad. That’s ok.
  9. I don’t want or need anyone to feel sorry for me. God has granted me an extra measure of optimism.
  10. I want my life experience to matter. I want to help others see the unique gifts in their struggles.
  11. Life is a gift. You don’t dislike a gift just because it’s not exactly what you expected.  See the unique beauty in the unexpected.
  12. Sadness over infertility morphs into sadness over grandchildren. This is where I am right now in my learning.
  13. I reserve the right to feel the emotion when I feel sad. I’ve earned it.
  14. I love your children. Thank you for sharing them with me.
  15. Feelings of inadequacy can be extremely powerful. This is a lifelong struggle.
  16. I isolate myself when feeling overwhelmed.
  17. Facebook can make me feel sad.
  18. My furbabies are everything to me. They heal my heart.
  19. Please don’t exclude me, but give me the option to opt out when I feel overwhelmed.
  20. Sometimes I do feel broken and less than. I am human.

For those who struggle on Mother’s Day.

I see you.

I feel you.

I am you.
