I know you mean well...

Sometimes people mean well but the things they say just make things worse. I remember when I was a youth pastor, every year for Mother's Day they would call me up in front of the church and give me a gift and say something along the lines of "you may not be a Mother, but you are a Mother of the Church." Although their hearts were in the right place it always created this combined feeling of anger and sadness in me and I always got rid of the gift they gave me because it reminded me that I was not the one thing I wanted to be...a Mom. Did you have well meaning people make things worse in your Motherhood journey?
