Most people will tell you that having children is the best blessings you will ever receive. There is so much hype about how amazing and life altering becoming a mom is. While there is no denying that being a mom is one of the best feelings in the world, it is not easy.
Being a mom is a wonderful experience. But no one ever warned you about the challenges of motherhood. Raising a child is one of the most difficult jobs in the world. You live off with an hour or two of sleep every day. You feed your baby every few hours and patiently rock him/her to sleep. You ask your mom, your spouse or a friend to look after your baby, so you can take a nap. If that’s not enough, there are also some chores you need to attend to. It’s not easy being you.
The pressure of modern moms
We all feel the stress and pressures of the complicated, fast-paced, and sophisticated world we live in. Whether you’re a working or stay at home mom, the pressure to accomplish too much in a day is a challenge for most women. In fact, modern moms still feel the pressure that mothers have felt for decades. They feel the pressure to be the perfect mother.
Most women feel the suffocating pressure to be amazing moms. They strive hard to impress everyone with their flawless family life, dazzling home management skills, and children’s impeccable behavior. With the increasing popularity of social media, it can be easy to compare your lives with that of others. Often, you feel like you’re always falling short in one area or another. Don’t let that pressure hijack your motherhood journey. Rather, enjoy it.
If you are doing your best to raise your children, then you are a great mom. If you love your children with all your heart, you are an amazing mom. So the next time you meet a new mom, tell her she’s doing a wonderful job. Remember, perfect moms don’t exist; real moms do.
