Im a first-time mum to a beautiful 10 week old boy who I love very much. The problem is that ever since hes been born I keep worrying about what the future is going to be like for him and his grandkids etc, more specifically the environment. I worry what the state of this planet is going to be in when hes 50 years old or so and that it wont be as good for him as what Ive had it, and so I find myself trying to be even more environmentally friendly than I was before (maybe not such a bad thing!) and judging people who I dont feel are being as environmentally friendly as they could be. (which I know is wrong!)
I do find myself getting a bit teary at times as well and Ive told my mum and my boyfriend and they try to get me to look at the positive things but I still cant stop worrying and thinking about it and its driving me a bit crazy!
Has this happened to any other new mothers or just me?
