Has anybody ever asked you “Who do you think you are?” Have you asked yourself this question? I am being asked Who do you think you are?
I am a mother. I am a friend. I am a lover. I am a genuine, sweet and caring person. I am strong. The past 10 years have really shaped me into the person that I am today. I am a different person that I was when I was in high school. I was an awkward, shy, low confidence person. I did not have many friends. I can honestly say, I had no clue who I was or who I wanted to be. But does any teenager really?
When I was 18 years old I got pregnant with my daughter, Haley. This changed my whole life. The path that I thought I was going to take completely changed. I became a mother on February 23rd, 2006. My whole focused changed. I had a baby to take care. I matured. When I was 20, I became pregnant with my daughter, Amberly. She was a blessing. I became a person who became filled with nothing but love and pride for my children. Everything I did was for them. But something dark happened during this time. I was still young, and married. Adam and I separated. This was the point in my life where I truly became independent. I raised two babies by myself for a year. I had no support from Adam.
We eventually got back together. The next 6 years I went through many ups and downs. Including the death of a child. I experienced true grief. But then I had a miracle happen and this opened my eyes up. I realized that even in your darkest moments, there is hope. I became pregnant with my son, Cayden. He brought joy into my life.
So first thing is first. I am a Mother beyond anything else. My children are my world.
I am a strong woman. I can get through anything. This past year and a half has proofed that. If you are a religious follower, then you have been through the journey of finding out that my husband was having an affair with my former best friend. It broke me. I did not think that I was going to survive this heartache. I did not think that I was going to be able to raise three children on my own. I did not think that I would be able to keep my home after he left. I was wrong! I am STRONG. I am a SURVIVOR! I am doing well. I have been able to take care of my children with minimal help from their father. I have been able to keep a full time job, pay all my bills and maintain as a single mother.
Lastly, I am a friend. I am a loyal friend. I am a kind friend. I am the type of person that is there for you when you need that shoulder to lean on. I get along with almost everybody that I meet. I am trustworthy and tend to keep secrets very well.
I am sure there is more to the entire ines of my soul. But who do you think you are? Sound off in the comments!
