Loneliness in Motherhood (MomTalk)

I am so excited about this new video-blog series that is starting.  I decided to call it "Mom Talk" (original, huh?) ;)  and deal with some of the questions and comments that I hear often after speaking to mothers.

In this short clip, I respond to the question "What was the hardest thing for you to deal with when you became a stay at home mom?"  One of the top answers I receive to this question is "Loneliness."

Take a look at this video and let me know what you think. I would love to hear your recommendations for the issue of loneliness in motherhood as well.  Also, if you have a question you would like answered in this series, please leave a comment.

Thanks for "tuning in"!!! :)

  1. Love that you're vlogging :) Loneliness can definitely be an issue for stay-at-home moms, even for introverts like me. I think loneliness would sometimes creep in slowly, and I wouldn't even recognize it until my mood had been dampened so far. Great advice to make it a priority to get out. I still need to put this on my must-do list.

    1. Thanks, Lori!! I agree, even introverts need contact with the outside world (and I am one of them, too). It feels like so much effort to have to step out of our comfort zone to meet new moms, but it is so worth it. Thanks for listening and commenting too! :)

  2. Nice Job Jaimie- your hair looks great by the way. I love the comment about your mood changing in response to connecting with a friend.
