32 Min

If you ever miss your life before parenthood, you’re not alone. And you’re not a bad parent. We gain so much when we have children and, at the same time, there’s also a lot of loss. Friendships change. Spontaneous plans are replaced by a million logistics. Just trying to drink your coffee while it’s hot becomes a challenge! This week, Dr. Becky hears from three parents who feel out of touch with things they loved about their pre-child selves and lives. She deshames their experiences and shares practical strategies rooted in a core Good Inside principle: Seeing the person under the parenting. From befriending guilt to exploring what lights you up inside, this episode will empower you to show up as the parent you want to be—by tapping into the person you want to be.
