Something that often gets pushed to the sidelines amidst the chaos of motherhood is your identity and confidence. BYY expert, recovery coach, Olivia Wallis gives some tips on empowering yourself and reclaiming your identity.

Bringing a new life into this world is one of the most beautiful and rewarding experiences a woman can have. But somewhere along the way, amidst the sleepless nights and endless nappy changes, it’s easy to lose sight of who you are and what makes you shine.

So, let’s hit pause for a moment and talk about reclaiming your identity and confidence after motherhood. Because yes, it’s possible, and you absolutely deserve it.

Multifaceted for confidence!

Motherhood is a significant part of your identity and who you are, but it’s not the only part. You’re still the same incredible woman with dreams, passions, and a whole lot of strength.

Take a moment to reconnect with the parts of yourself that existed before you became a mum. What were your interests, hobbies, and aspirations? Revisiting these aspects of your identity can help you feel more grounded and connected to yourself.

Doing your best

From the moment your baby arrives, you’re faced with new challenges and uncertainties at every turn. It’s easy to start doubting yourself and your abilities as a mother.

Motherhood can be a humbling experience, to say the least. But here’s the thing—no one has it all figured out, and that’s okay. You’re doing the best you can, and that’s more than enough.

Celebrate your wins

So, how do you reclaim your confidence? Start by celebrating your wins, no matter how small they may seem. Affirm yourself as you would a best friend. Did you soothe your baby to sleep after a particularly fussy night? Give yourself a high five. Did you manage to get everyone dressed and out the door on time? That’s a victory worth celebrating. Acknowledge your strengths and the amazing job you’re doing as a mother.

Supportive network

Next, surround yourself with a supportive network of fellow mums who lift you up and cheer you on. Whether it’s joining a local mum’s group, connecting with other mums online, or simply chatting with a friend who gets it—surround yourself with positive influences who remind you of your worth and resilience.

Ask for help

Finally, don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it. Whether it’s delegating tasks to your partner, leaning on friends and family for support, or seeking professional help for your mental health—know that it’s okay to not have all the answers. Asking for help is a sign of strength, not weakness.

As you navigate the beautiful, messy, and sometimes overwhelming journey of motherhood, remember this—you are strong, you are capable, and you are so much more than just a mum.

Reclaiming your identity and confidence is not about becoming someone new; it’s about rediscovering the remarkable woman you’ve always been.
