If there's one word that can describe what I through as a first-time mom, is this: overwhelmed. I am overwhelmed with love for my little bundle of joy. I wonder how it's possible that something so small can occupy a big space in my heart. Motherhood is overwhelming. Especially with my duties as the breadwinner, mother, and wife, all at the same time, I end up neglecting my health, wellness, sanity and happiness in the process. I am constantly anxious. I feel guilt. I had returned to work right after my maternity leave and every time I leave my baby, whether he's sleeping or awake, my heart breaks. It makes me not want to go to work. As a new mom, there are so many responsibilities. I can't be selfish and only think of myself. Every decision I make now includes her and her well-being. Even me-time is compromised by her time table.
