Blogging Carnival of Emotions: breaking taboos

Women all over the blogosphere have been tackling taboo emotional subjects over the past few days. It has become an informal blogging carnival as mothers have been looking at the different sides of oft denied emotions. Finding great personal courage to explore and express subjects which are usually left untouched.

The genie is out of the bottle. Together we are learning, healing, finding resources, strength and encouragement through reflection and unity rather than fear and judgement.

I am bringing all those that I know of here together, topics include post natal depression, anger, isolation… Do take time to read these insightful posts, and the discussions in the comments section underneath.

If you haven’t already, do bring your energy and experiences to the party. I invite you to join the discussion – comment on a blog post, write your own and link up to this post, or link up a previous post you have written on the subject.
