Prior to having children I was a highly successful business woman, life of the party and very sociable. Since having children and quitting my job to be a stay at home Mum I feel like I have lost my previous self. I was at a wedding on the weekend and I actually felt scared to socialise with the people sitting at my table, if someone asked me a question I would get startled and felt caught off guard and mumble my words. I’m not quite sure how I went from being a highly confident outgoing person to this quiet, socially disable kind of person… Has this happened to anyone else? And how did you overcome it?
