I feel like a failure when I have to tell my kids that I feel overwhelmed with my own parenting duties and that I don’t know what I’m doing. You know, the only thing that works for me is a few minutes of quiet and reflection. That’s all I’ve been able to do to myself.
Yeah, I feel the same. I feel like I am constantly failing at parenting and I don’t know what Im doing, but I know I am failing. My kids are 6 and 4, so they don’t know what Im doing, and I still haven’t gotten over that.
I know this may sound weird, but I have no idea why you feel like you are failing. I mean, my kids are 4 and 6, and Im so exhausted at the end of each day that Im not sure I even recognize them anymore, let alone care enough to do anything with them. Maybe that sounds odd, but there you go.
It does sound odd, but it is the truth. For some parents it is a very dark time in the year, for others it may be more a time of celebration. But for some of us, there is a lot of work to be done. So when we do feel like we are failing, we have to remind ourselves that we are doing something right. We have to remind ourselves that we are a part of a community and that we are doing things right.
Some of us are feeling like failures in our parenting and work lives. We have a lot to be worried about. We have a lot of work to be doing. We have a lot of things that need to be figured out. We also have a lot of people that we need to be supporting. We are not the only ones that are feeling this way. And for some of us, there is a lot of frustration and a lot of crying to do.
As a mom, you have to step away from your own feelings and emotions to make sure that you have the right mindset, and it is not always easy. For me, it was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. I had to get up and really clear the air after the one of the most stressful years of my life, and I had to do it with great purpose and with an open heart.
The hardest part is stepping away from your own emotions. It is so easy to put on a confident face and say, “I’m just one person. I’m a mom and I’m here to feel the emotions.” But when you step into your own skin, and you feel your own emotions, you have to be willing to let them out. This is something that I’m sure many of you have experienced.
For most of us, we have to walk away from our own feelings. We have to step into our own skin to get those emotions out. It’s why so many of the people in our lives are our best friends. This is a tough thing, especially for mothers. I know I have had to do it a few times and it’s not always easy, and it can be quite lonely.
Its one thing to be the person you were born to be, but it is another to be the person you were meant to be.
I know I will have to leave the mommyhood thing for awhile. I don’t have children of my own, and I’m not a mom. But I have a lot of experience in motherhood and I think I can relate to others’ feelings. It’s something I think I can still contribute to.
