19 Anonymous Confessions On How Becoming A Parent Changes You

“It’s made me realize how much my mom went through with us, and how alike I am to her.”

Becoming a parent is a blessing worth celebrating, but it's also somewhat terrifying. It's not just a new chapter, it's a whole new book. Because after having a kid, it's suddenly your responsibility to help someone else navigate the trials and tribulations that come along with personhood — no easy task. 

But how exactly does becoming a parent change you? People submitted anonymous confessions answering this very question using the Whisper app, an online platform where users can anonymously send and reply to messages. They shared how having a child has affected them personally and mentally, as well as the lessons they've learned. 

For all the parents out there reading, we're pretty sure you can relate to many of these sentiments. To all the people without kids, we're pretty sure you'll want to call your parents after.
