head-1965683_1280At 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.

  1. I couldn’t agree more with you. Growing up I had a good childhood but had a horrible 2 years with an ex and grew insecurities, lacked self love, and many other things. When I had kids, I too decided to raise my kids to be secure, happy, and encourage them to do good in all they do. To be kind, compassionate and to never stop loving themselves. I want to teach them that no matter what, mom and dad will always be here also to help them get through the rough times and create the good times. Thank you for sharing this. Such an inspirational story. Remember, you are beautiful. We all are beautiful in our own ways. It’s what’s in your heart that matters most. ❤

  2. This is such a beautiful post. I had insecurities growing up as well and I’ve also made a decision to not let my unborn children deal with what I had to go through. Thank you for this. I’m going to follow your tips and start reading kids psychology books.


  3. We can sometimes get caught up in living our lives that we forget about the small things. This post is an excellent reminder that we all need to slow down and pay attention to the things that are most important.

    Great article thank you for sharing.


  4. I am a fellow sufferer and I also gained a lot of weight because of one pill. So glad to meet another person who had the same issues as I did growing up!


  5. Thank you for writing this and reminding us that we shouldn’t get in a rut about daily activities, but it’s all about the love for our family. By the way, I had asthma as a kid, too.
