starting to feel like I am missing out

I have only ever been with DH. I am 22 years old and have been with him since just before I turned 19. I love him with all my heart, and could never imagine myself living without him. Well, lately I have been feeling like I have missed out on a lot of things. We were ttc when I got pregnant at 19. He is 5 years older and had his time to be young and care free. I have never gone out to the bar with my girl friends, or anyone for that matter. I have never had a chance to be care free. In high school I was always focused in doing the best I could to ensure I had a good future. As soon as I graduated high school, I enrolled in college. I met DH while in school, and we began ttc shortly before I graduated college. So the entirety of my "youth" was spent on school, and then having our son. Do not get me wrong, I love my son more than life itself and would not trade him for the world. In no way do I regret my choice to have him, nor would I change anything about it. However, I feel like I am missing something. I am not sure what it is, but I feel like something isn't right. Has anyone else ever felt this way? If you have, what did you do to fix it?

You're still young.. Grab your girlfriends and hit a bar or lounge. Treat yourself to a girls night out every so often.

You missed out on a lot, but if you are happy still that's good.

Find some girlfriends. Go to a bar. Just because you're a mother doen't mean you have to stay locked in the house 24/7. Get out, have fun. You'll be a happier, more fulfilled and BETTER mother for it!

You did miss out, but that's the path you wanted to be on

& this is why waiting to conceive isn't a bad thing.

Maybe you are right. I always feel like I would be a bad mother to ask someone to watch my son so I can go out. Maybe it will help to have a night to myself.

I feel like this sometimes . I am 26 and have been with my husband since I was 18. Sometimes I wish I experienced having my own apartment, and just being independent. And just going out for dinner and drinks with my girlfriends and staying out all night.

You did miss a lot. But, you can't go back in time, what's done is done. We all have regrets.

I am happy. I love being a wife and mother. I work from home, so I have always been around my son. Sometimes I just feel like I am missing something. Like something isn't right. Maybe it is just that DH is working out of state and is gone for months at a time now. All I know is that I feel incredibly selfish and guilty for feeling this way, but I cannot seem to control it.
