Motherhood, no matter how wonderful, is not an easy task. Though it is something every woman generally wants, there are often some times when it is not easy to be a mom even when you are a stay-at-home mom. Being a stay-at-homes mom, it’s not just the unthankfulness you have to deal with but also the compromises you have to make. But still, there are a few things that you have to cope with when you are a stay-at-home mom.
1. Proving your worth
It’s not just the society or your own family you have to prove your worth to but also your own self. Every day you have to console yourself by saying that you are doing what’s best for you and your family even if you can do so much more in the outside world.
2. Explaining Yourself
Have you ever had to say the line,“Yes I am a stay-at-home but...”. Well, then you are explaining yourself to the world and to your own consciousness. This comes with the assumptions you make that people will judge you for staying at home and will assume that you do nothing all day. These justifications and assumptions only make people’s beliefs even more strongly. So stop explaining your own self.
3. The perfect mommy
Being a stay at home mother has its own insecurities and with it there come certain challenges which mothers take up on themselves. Basically, as you get insecure, you strive too hard to make everything just perfect which ends up hurting you in the long run while everyone around you starts expecting a bit too much every time and every day.
4. Everyone is watching
Motherhood is not a theatre performance and the people around you are not some audience who have come to see your performance. Thinking that as everyone is judging you, you tend to put too much pressure on yourself to make no mistake which in the end leads to too much stress on you. Stop thinking that and you will be the best mother to your child.
You are the perfect mother for your child and trust us, your child is highly privileged to have a mother as yourself and thus there is no reason at all for you to be worried or tensed about anything in any way. So stop lying to yourself and just be who you are.
