You aren’t only a Mom you are literally a parenting superhero. But with the territory comes many things.
A huge pressure falls on you when life leads you to invest your whole time in taking care of yours.
Such hard work, just as lonely as it is exhausting and gratifying.
Although who has not been there can’t fully understand, the basic blaming comes right from yourself. You can console other women in your place, but when you’re focusing your thoughts on you, then you feel you are not enough.
You get to Develop and Build a Personality
This is one thing I’ve learned along the way. You are growing and teaching little people who, thanks to you, they will be one way or another. You are tracing their first steps to be a good, sharing, loving person. The capacity of fighting, not giving up, focusing, being responsible. All these skills will be their tools and resources to face their own future.
This is where all your hard work goes. Could you invest your time in something greater? You work harder and more hours than anyone in the house. Realize you have a job, a very complicated one, completely vocational, and with awesome results, which give your life a meaning.
You will never regret concentrating your life in them. Forget the idea of “I’m only a mom”. A mom is a personality creator, a happiness source, a full time nurse, a tireless console, a story maker, a protector wolf, a guide. Literally a parenting superhero.
Do you still feel you’re not enough? Look at your family and realize how much of them is pure love, just thanks to you.
