Comments that did not help

“You should be grateful you have two healthy kids”

“Imagine what X is going through who is sick”

“Just come out with me and have a few drinks”

“Look at X who has no help and is far from family and how well she is doing” 

“X has 4 kids and works full-time. If anyone should be complaining it should be her”

“Just truck through it”

“Just shake it off”

“It’ll pass. We all had it” 

“When I gave birth I looked perfect the same day. I’d shower and put on makeup and would welcome all my friends”

    These are reactionary comments, not mindful ones, unfortunately 😦 sorry you had to deal with those comments. The only thing they can do is add unmerited guilt.
