This hat is too big for me, and is forever falling off my head. I’m working on it, I’m growing into it. I’m doing my best everyone, so give me a break.
To all the mothers in the world: please, let’s stop this charade of pretending motherhood is all bliss and smooth sailing. When we act like we are supermoms,we just make each other look and feel bad. We become, each of us isolated, in her lonely bubble, thinking she’s a failure.
Well, let me tell you a secret that I learned from working in Women’s Mental Health: Almost everyone finds motherhood difficult at times. Everyone has dark moments, and everyone longs to be alone and distance themselves from their children at times.
There, I’ve said it. Now let’s just all tell each other the truth. Let’s have each other’s backs. Let’s not live for our children but with them.
Trust me, it’s much less stressful. And much more fun.
