Hey Mama, this is Mama’s Daily Dose. I’m Meghan Q Barrett of allyoumama.com. Mama’s Daily Dose is… If you’re listening to this, we’re connecting. Let’s get moving before we get interrupted.
Connecting is such an important part of human life, we all want to be a part of something. And this goes back to, you know, like prehistoric times where you needed to be a part of a tribe in order to survive. If you didn’t have the protection and the resources of your tribe, if you went out on your own, you’re basically dead. While essentially you could live on your own resources alone, nowadays; there’s still that drive for human connection. And to feel like you are seen and understood by another person. And when I was going through postpartum anxiety, and I kept it to myself so much, I felt so disconnected from people because I had this big secret that I was hiding. And I felt like I couldn’t truly be myself. And I couldn’t connect with other people. So when I started this podcast,the main aim was just to create connection to have other mamas know that there is someone out there that is going through the same thing that you are, or has gone through there. And there’s people out there that understand it, too. And so just know that if you are listening to this right now, we’re connecting. We don’t need to see each other in person. We don’t need to talk on the phone, we don’t need to text. This is a connection right here. And I am so grateful that we have this platform to connect on. And connection doesn’t have to be this difficult thing. It doesn’t have to be this thing that takes so long to cultivate. Connection can occur in a quick look. I’ve never felt more connected to other moms, when I’m taking a screaming kid out of somewhere over my shoulder,and I just lock eyes with another mom or dad and they say “hey, I’ve been there.”
Mama we are here to connect because we all need that connection. And if you need a little extra connection outside of this podcast, give me a follow on Instagram @MeghanQBarrett. And that’s Meghan with an H. And share this podcast with some mama friends so we can continue to reach more and connect with even more moms. And have a great day free of mama guilt because you deserve it.
