"just a mom"

I am just wondering if anyone else can relate to this?
I just had my 7th baby 2 months ago, and well... for awhile now I have been felling less like a woman
who is made up of many layers a friend, wife and so on, to "just a mom".
Don't get me wrong a mom is who I most want to be, but I feel like I am/ have been losing me.
Can anyone else relate?

its not easy.  especially when you try to balance being a mom and a wife.

Sometimes I forget i'm also "Valeri".  I've committed to one day going out by myself (no husband or kids) just to focus on me.

Yup.  I want to take a class or something that is just for me.  Maybe work on some hobbies?  do you have anything that you like to do just for yourself?

Thank you for your post's
I do have hobbies, and time to myself, but I have to say when I am not with my kids I sometimes feel lost.
That is what I mean by I am just a mom. When I am not doing my mom duties, I just don't know how to be, or who I am.
