Matrescence forces us to redefine who we are.
It asks us to look at what’s working, who we think we are, what we’re attached to, and how we value ourselves – and not just in the first weeks and months of motherhood, but over and over again.
(In fact, it’s kind of never ending. But don’t let that put you off!)
But as we peel back those layers of identity and attachment, what does that leave?
As my guest this week – author, mama and now children’s book creator Amy Molloy – says:
If I’m not that person, then who am I?
This podcast is a reminder that we never stop asking ourselves this question – and that’s OK.
With each new layer we peel back, we’re getting closer to our true self.
