Crystal Kelliher’s Bio:
My name is Crystal Kelliher and I created CrystalBetsy to connect with Moms who feel their sense of self is slowly disappearing.
I want you to know you are not alone, and there IS a way out. All you need to do is give yourself a little TLC.
When we become Moms so many of us stop caring about ourselves. We never talk about it, but we feel an emptiness that we can’t seem to put our finger on.
There are days we feel exhausted by family life, motherhood and we sometimes feel the loss of our identity.
We wonder why we are unhappy when we have beautiful healthy children, a loving relationship and our own health to be grateful for. It is NOT just you. I have also been in that place, filled with guilt.
After feeling fed up, I did my research and made some practical changes to my life, and mindset. I found what works & what doesn’t.
