Tonight I would love to share Alannas story with you. I am sure it will resonate with many Mothers out there.
From an early age Alanna has been a mother figure. She didn’t have the easiest start in life and ended up helping care for her siblings for many years.
Through school she was bullied but always kept thinking someone else out there has it worse. She believed if she could work hard and achieve her goals this would show her siblings there is a better way of life out there but you have to work for it.
As she grew older all she ever wanted to be was a mother to her own child. She wanted to feel the ups and downs of having someone that was all hers and someone she could show how amazing the world can be. In July 2016 this dream came true and she welcomed a baby girl into her arms. This baby girl gave her everything she had ever dreamed of. A love like no other and she felt on top of the world. She finally had what she had always wanted.
Then after a few months the feeling was still there but she started to feel guilt with it. She was finding being a ‘Stay at Home Mum’ seemed like a dirty word.
So when her baby girl turned 1 she decided to start work again. She found a job with some wonderful ladies and soon started to enjoy having adult interaction again.
But the weight of being a working mum soon took over and she struggled through each day until she couldn’t cope anymore and had a breakdown.
She went back to being a SAHM Mum and while she loves her baby girl slowly began feeling more and more invisible.
By sharing her story Alanna wants other Woman to realise that they are not invisible. Being a Mum whether stay at home or a working mum means you are doing a fantastic job but it doesn’t mean you have to forget about yourself. If she can help 1 woman realise they are not alone then she has accomplished what she set out to do. As she knows the feeling of being unseen all too well.
