I few years ago I took the Meyers Briggs personality test and discovered I'm an INFJ. That stands for introverted intuitive feeling judging. I took this before I became a mommy. I was curious if it had changed at all. For the most part it didn't change. I'm a little more relaxed than I used to be but not as much as I wish I was. That perfectionist tendency still comes out occasionally. I'm sure a second child would cause me to have to relax much more, but I'm not quite ready for #2! I have my hands full with #1! If you've never taken this little test you should! It's surprisingly accurate!
Concerned about relationships/humanity
Takes disproportionate amount of responsibility
Will suddenly withdraw into self
Lives in a world of hidden meanings and possibilities
Private, difficult to understand
Ignores others opinions
Believes in constant growth
Some of these are positive and some aren't. They are all still true to some degree. I feel that motherhood can be lonely, but then I think maybe it's my personality that causes this. I've decided this week to step out of my comfort zone for my sake and my daughters sake. I've planned outings for she and I for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. This is a huge deal for me. I'm much more comfortable just staying home all day until I go to work in the afternoon. My daughter deserves better. I have no idea how these outings are going to go but I'm hoping for the best!
