After 40 weeks of waiting and hours of excruciating pain, it all seems worth it when you see your little angel smiling up at you from your arms. You love the attention you are getting from everyone and the wishes on social media. And then your life takes a complete 180-degree turn. This is the time of sleepless nights, of changing diapers, of constant crying and of not catching a break.
Moreover, if you are a working mom, your life goes for a toss, and you do not seem to get any time for anything anymore. Juggling has become second nature to you, and you feel like running away at times. Though being a mother brings to you a sense of fulfilment, it is easy to lose yourself fast and soon the person staring back at you from the mirror is just an echo of a distant you.
