At the age of 10, I had Asthma and I started to take lots of medications. One of those medications was Cortisone (I do not know If it spelled right or wrong) but any how, this led to gaining lots of weight, changed the way I look and made me feel insecure. I started to hear comments from everyone how I changed and I turned into an introvert kid. Staying by myself most of the times, rarely talk, not feeling well in gatherings, hesitant, not a very self confident kid and not having any friends. I started to get myself out of that world back then and made my own world. I started dreaming about the future and how i will be different when I get older ( I an optimistic person no matter what happens 😊😊). I confess, one of the main mistakes I made was that I didn’t share that with my parents. That would have made a huge difference. Anyway, I started working on myself at the age of 14 so hard. I stopped the medications and followed a very strict diet. I lost 15 kilograms in three months only. I wasn’t thinking about my health back then. All what I cared about was my shape.
When I became a mother, I remembered this child , I remembered how I was feeling. So my first aim as a mother was to raise secured kids. I want teach my kids how to accept themselves the way they are. I want my kids to be self confident and happy about themselves. I started to read so many books and articles about kids’ psychology and how to raise a secured child. The keyword is always connection and communication with your children. I am not an expert nor a physiological person. I am just a mother who will follow her motherhood instincts to raise her children.
This blog is a reminder for myself before anyone else to not get dragged in the daily life chores like cooking, cleaning, doing homeworks, seeking good grades ,…etc and forget about the main thing about being a mother. Being a mother is all about raising genuinely happy kids and have a strong relationship with them.
