Ive always been a person who wants to prove not only to myself but to everyone else that I can do it all. Through out my school years I was actively involved in and out of school in numerous clubs, teams, mentor ship programs and church activities. I manged everything very well I must say. So when I became a mom it was a no brainier that I would a continue my same habits. Boy I was wrong.
I became a mom at a young age full of energy and was perusing that Super Mom role and fell flat on my face. I struggled so much and was super disappointed in my self. I eventually got the hang of it after 4 kids later. But lately Ive been feeling the same way I did 13 years ago. I think it has to do with me starting a new job…that’s another post for another day. Sometimes I feel as if I’m the only mom going thorough all this.The guilt is hitting hard and I’m back to the feeling of what the hell is wrong with me. I give myself a pep talks and say”come on Karen you can do this, put your big girl panties on”. I have cut out a lot of other stuff to be able to do it all.
In this series I want to be completely honest and real. I want to make sure moms out there know that they are not alone. The overwhelming of doing it all is haunting many of us. I am still not sure how I will handle these feelings of insecurity, but I will keep you up to date on my situation. Right now all I know is that I’m just trying not to loose my mind and just take it day by day.
