Wealthy Affiliate Sure Makes Me Feel Good Again!
I can't count how many days I moped around before finding this. My house rarely got clean, I was seriously depressed obviously because I just had nothing to do anymore and I felt kinda helpless and trapped by my circumstances. Motherhood and Post Partum Depression can sure get a mom down.
I can't help but notice that ever since I found WA, I have a cleaner house, I'm playing with the kids more, and my husband comes home after working all day at our restaurant to see a smile on his wife's face. Yes... he saw a smile on my face before I had the baby and was working at our business with him. But I know that for the past 20 months... 23 if you want to count the three months before delivery... It has been a struggle for me to get off my couch.
It was more than just my body physically recovering and dealing with unmanageable aches and pains. I just needed to have a purpose... a way to feel like I'm moving forward and contributing to our future again.
Without a career I felt a bit out of place. Yes.. raising a baby and the other kiddos is important too... and so is marketing our business from the home... but I was always the one taking care of my kids before I met my husband. Life was not stable and for years I jumped from job to job trying to find the right one after my previous marriage failed. I worked the full time job and the graveyard shift, the temporary jobs, the substitute jobs, then I even rejoined the military a second time. But, I didn't go active Army like before... instead I joined as a reserve member in the Army National Guard. So that I could still take care of my kids.
But the kids only had me and when they were changing things in the military and sending more and more reserve members overseas, and even though I wanted to contribute and was about to get promoted to E-5 (Sgt), I had to make a decision and I chose not to re-enlist after four years in the reserves. Anyways... Here I was 2 years ago... starting a new life and business... then I was stuck at home suddenly with a husband who wanted me to be the stay at home mom! WHAT???
I had no idea how depressed that would make me. But after finding Wealthy Affiliate..nearly 2 years later... I am much happier to have found something that I look forward to doing... I'm not even on facebook as often as I was before. (that's a good thing)...
Now I feel productive again. Point is... Wealthy Affiliate sure is good for one's mental health and happiness!
