Aww singer Simi has admitted she lost herself after the birth of her daughter, and only discovered, ”hey simi you are still here”, after 2 years.
She explained her whole live was about her daughter and she almost forgot herself
We have heard most women say this!
Speaking during the interview, Simi says she is glad she found herself back, but in truth, motherhood has not been an easy task.
When asked; “How’s your little baby? You got a little carbon copy of yourself that is one of the most interesting people already. What’s that like?”
“Oh my god, she is [one of the most interesting people already]. It is a lot of things at the same time and I feel like the more time I spend as a mom, my feelings about it evolve. And I remember – she’s 3 now, she just turned 3 last month – and I remember that I just started to find myself again last year. Just right after she turned 2. It’s almost like – I don’t know, I guess everybody experiences it differently, but for me, it’s like in your world, few things are dimmer to you but certain things are clearer to you. It’s like your brain just hones in to this whole mothering thing, that’s how it was for me.
“2 years later after I had my child, I feel like I started to see myself a little more. When I say see myself, I mean notice myself, like oh you’re still there. I don’t know how to explain it, it’s like the tunnel vision became a little bit wider, and I was just able to see and experience myself a little bit more. And so it can make you really vulnerable, but it’s such a beautiful thing. I feel like that’s the most incredible thing I have ever done and everyday, I am grateful to have that opportunity. But it’s not easy.”
