    Emotions of Motherhood!

    I do not consider myself an overly emotional person. I don’t remember ever crying in a movie. And I remember being once able to examine emotional events, by taking a step back, with a cool level head without losing my calm. I used to be all about self-preservation – pretty efficient at warding off negative emotions. That was before I became a mother. Now, a year into motherhood, I feel as though I am somehow being subjected to a psychological experiment on how-many-emotions-can-a-human-feel-in-a-day.

    Advice to New Adults – From a Fellow Adult (Who Was a Spoiled Child)!

    I was as rotten as a tomato as a child. No, my parents weren’t super rich, they were as middle class as could be. Still I was the precious first child of two guilt ridden first generation working parents who were overwhelmed by the lack of time they had for me after their jobs. And those judging articles newspapers and magazines were publishing during that time condemning the women pursuing a career outside of homely responsibilities were not helping. Even though I was proud of my parents having important jobs (for as long as I can remember), they seemed to…
