That being said, the realization that I have an issue has really come to light lately because Sophia has started to show severe signs of separation anxiety from me. Its probably from her feeling it from me, never being away from me, never having anyone take care of her but me for the last 4 years. Its become a bit extreme and we are taking big steps to correct this and help her understand it is okay and I will be back. It was to the point I couldn't leave the room without her screaming hysterically that she missed me and needed me. I could tell she was stressed and feeling the anxiety, so to help her I am working on me too. I just want the very best for my children, I may have over compensated for that by being a hovering over protective mother. I have got to find that common ground of being a great mother but also giving her and I the space we need to keep our relationship healthy and happy.
I hope I am not alone in this. I hope this will help other mothers, women, men, kids, whom ever that is suffering from anxiety. You are not alone, I am not alone.
