28 year old woman dating 23 year old
I would tell her to not waste her time worrying about how others perceive her, to not let the opinions of ancillary/irrelevant people hold her back.I would most importantly give her the down and dirty about giving birth.
Honestly, in hindsight, I probably would have taken more naps, too! At that time, I (mistakenly) thought that I had it all.
But while I had given birth to this beautiful little girl, I was having a hard time understanding and embracing motherhood.
If I could give one piece of advice to my 28-year-old self, I’d say, ‘Remember how you thought you would never move on or love again after your boyfriend broke up with you when you were 17?
Remember how dumb you felt as a result when you got engaged at 22?
For the first time in life, I feel grounded and I’m super secure in my role as his mother.
