Motherhood means unhappy woman?
People are saying that parenthood is a gift but it’s also a really hard job. All Moms here know what I’m talking about. We love our babies from the moon and back but sometimes we would love to send them on…the moon.
How it’s possible that some of us look so unhappy when we should be examples of pure joy. We always dreamed of being Mom and now our dreams come true. So were are those big smiles and joyful faces?
Instead, I can see tired and exhausted Moms. Sometimes when people telling me that I look tired there is only one thing I want to say ‘Are you kidding me? Do you have kids? Do you even know what does it mean?’ When kids don’t sleep Mommy can forget about it as well. When they have a bad day Moms have even worst.
Why are we doing it to ourselves?
Unfortunately, it works like that but sometimes we just pushing ourselves into that deep tiredness. Some of my friends don’t like to ask for help or don’t know how to do that. I know Moms who think that they know everything better and they will do everything better. So don’t be surprised if your husband will not help you with the baby if he had to listen so many times that he is doing it wrong. If you will not admit that you are really tired and need to rest don’t expect that someone will offer you a help.
Fight for your happiness
You don’t need to be unhappy all the time. You can do a lot for yourself to change it in a second.
- Share your homework with other family members
- Try to exercise more. Regular exercise will make you feel less tired in the long run, and you’ll have more energy
- Diet is really important. To keep up your energy through the day you need to eat regular meals and healthy snacks every three to four hours
- Try some relaxing activities. It can be something that you really like: reading books, sending time with friends, listening music etc.
- Drink less alcohol and drink more water
Fight for yourself! Motherhood doesn’t need to equal with an unhappy and tired woman. You just need to understand that you don’t need to be alone in it. You can ask for help. Do it for yourself, for your baby, for your family. The world will still exist even if you will not make a dinner and order a pizza. The world will not end if you will forget about shopping. Laundry doesn’t need to be done today If you want to take a nap or sit on a couch. Stop saying that you are a Mom and start telling others that you are a happy Mom. Small change big difference.
