To The Mum that thinks she can’t do it…

Feel Like A Failure

I promise you, you are not alone. Seriously, you’re not!

I’m assuming you’re feeling like nothing is going right? Everything is going against your plans and what you want?

You generally feel tired, lethargic, frustrated. Finding yourself unable to concentrate on every day tasks. Your senses seem to be on red alert. You can hear everything. Your child voice seems to be louder. The slightest touch makes you irritable and you pull away. All you can see is things that need doing, things to add to your already never ending to do list. The slightest smell leaves you feeling ill and you’re off your food so that taste of hunger lingers.

All you want to do is hide away. Be alone. But you can’t. You’re not allowed.

Because You’re Mum!!!

You’re the one that keeps everything going. You’re the one that cleans the house from top to bottom. Puts the laundry in the washer, irons and puts it all away. You’re on call 24/7 to your child or children’s needs. ‘Mum, can I have a drink?’ ‘Mum, I can’t do it, can you do it?’ ‘Mum, I want that because so and so has it’.

You make sure everyone has their lunches. Makes sure everyone is where they should be on time.

Over time you start to feel overwhelmed. As I mentioned above. Your senses go into overload. Your mind goes into overdrive. You start to feel lost and alone.

You know how I know this? Because I, myself have been here many times in the last 15 years of being a mum.

    I have to agree! I can’t count how many times I have been the one thinking on earth can they do it when I can’t. You can always remember the days things don’t go to plan, and they are always the ones you bring up. I try to keep telling myself it’s just a bad day……… great post #Blogstravaganza

    Overwhelmed….certainly. We all have good days and bad days. Thanks for sharing this really honest post and for linking up with us #FabFridayPost

    I think lots of us mums can relate to this. We all have those days – perhaps everyday and that’s when we do need a brake. My night sleep is my brake and I cherish it everyday. Thank you so much linking up with us on #FabFridayPost

    I think all mums feel like that at times . I look back at the last year and I think the only thing I have done purely for me is to have my hair cut twice. Really need to prioritise self care more, as mums we won’t be able to look after anyone we if don’t take care of ourselves and ensure we’re emotionally. And physically happy.

    Great article, it shows how bloody difficult and important a mum job is. I always say it should be a paid job 🙂 This should be a must read for everyone who thinks being a mum is a picnic. xx
