Hello everyone, happy Monday. New week, which means time to start this week on the right foot and of course seize it. Grab your coffee or ketones and let’s dive into this blog post.
So if you are a mom, how many of you felt the mom guilt? Me, this person, literally every day. I’m just now starting to deal with it and let me say it, I’m still working on it on every single day.
So what is the Mom Guilt? Basically, it where the feeling of doubt, anxiousness or uncertainty experienced by mothers when we are constantly thinking we are failing as a mother. If you shake your head up and down and scream, yes I have that. Believe me, you are not alone. I experience this every day.
I experience mom guilt when I drop my daughter off at daycare so I can go to work. I experience mom guilt when I work long days and my mom goes pick up Athena from daycare, and time I get off work, it’s basically bedtime. I experience mom guilt when I go to the gym or have me time for an hour or when I do my makeup or when I don’t spend every waking day with my daughter.
It’s like this pressure where you have to try to be the perfect mom and I’m just letting you know in your kid’s eye you are already the perfect mom. We are all perfect mom, in our own ways and we really have to stop and look at other mom who has their shits together and their kids are perfect and smart and hitting every single milestone and the mom have supper done every day and lunches pack and always got their shits together. Because of 100% behind the closed door, they probably don’t have their shits together and looking at you like you have your shit together and wish they were like you.
Us, mom really have to stop judging other moms and start building each other up and stop comparing each other, because we all have a different style of parenting and what works for me, might not work for another mom. We are all doing this parenting shit 1 day at a time. But I’m getting off on the wrong topic, that will be for another post.
The one thing we all have to stop is the mom guilt. Because mom you are not failing as a mother. You are an amazing mom. This is what I say to myself, every time, I get that mom guilt coming on, you are amazing mom. I then say, does Athena have a roof over her head, does she have food in the house, does she has lights and heat, does she have an amazing mom who absolutely loves her, then Chelsey you are amazing mom and you are definitely not failing has a mom.
What I’m trying to say, you are all amazing mom, and through your kid’s eye you are the best mom in the whole wide world and they are very lucky to have you has their mom. We are all trying to get through this parenting 1 step at a time without losing our minds.
Well, that’s it for this post. Leave a comment, if you experience the mom guilt and how you deal with it. Share and like if you love this post. I hope this helps you deal with the mom guilt.
See you all next Monday.
