Quote the nicest thing anyone has ever said about you
“You’re going to be an cracking mother.”
Now… I realise that this has only become relevant recently, but I can think of nothing else that is as nice as this. Or something that I needed to hear from someone I trust and respect as much as I do. I just… Its hard to describe.
I’ve had a lot of fears and panic attacks and thoughts about motherhood. Since September last year, there has been no other subject that has returned to my mind so often. Not even writing. Though I’m not massively surprised by that; this is the biggest thing to happen to me, ever, ever! So that’s going to be the case.
But early on there were so few people I told. The traditional ‘better wait until the three month marker, since then we’re out of the danger zone‘ kinda thing. But one chap in particular I told made me feel very much better just by saying those words. Or something to that effect (he has a way with words that I don’t always manage to reproduce here exactly, but I do try). Anyway in the turmoil of everything else in my head, to hear that from someone who wasn’t Dave, or my mother, father, or any other family member was exactly what I needed. And to know that he thoroughly believes it for the truth is even better. ^_^
So… thanks m’dear!
And to everyone else who has told me something similar since; thank you all too. Little boosts such as those are really helpful at a time like this. They aren’t just empty words coming from you guys and I treasure that. 🙂
