These past couple of days I have felt a little defeated. I'm really struggling to swallow my pride and receive help from others. I don't know why, but I have had this sudden independent personality lately, like when someone offers to help me with something I quickly respond "It's okay, I got it!" When in reality, I'm legitimately struggling. Ha! And even more so when it comes to people wanting to help with Lucy, like asking someone to babysit is my worst nightmare. Why!? Is it because I feel like I need to prove something? Like "I'm a good mother, I can handle my baby and take care of everything else"? WHAT IS MY DEAL. I'm still trying to get a grip of this whole Mom thing and what I'm learning is that I need to set my pride aside. It's okay to receive and ask for help... It doesn't make me any less of a mother.
