Forgiving My Body For Being A Body:
Dominique Matti

Be kind to yourself — you’re making a person!

As a fellow person who deals with depression at times And as a mother of two, let me just tell you: that second pregnancy is a Bitch! My husband has always said Thank the Lord for microwavable meals, because he swears I never left the couch the entire pregnancy. And I was super thankful for an amazing boss, because I pretty much slept through work, too, until both girls hit a year. I don’t even know that depression factored into any of it, just the sheer work of motherhood. So again, be kind. You’re amazing.
