Certainly, you may want to be the best mother you can be but that definitely doesn’t mean that you need to be perfect.
Perfect moms don’t exist and the sooner you accept that fact the better for you and your kids. There is no manual out there on how to be the most amazing mom in the world, but as time goes by you will understand that as long as you are happy while taking care of your children, you will inevitably be a great one.
You don’t need to obsess over each mistake or fall apart when you cannot accomplish a given task, just do what you can to give your children a stable life and try to be happy as a family. Rather than overthinking every little problem your children are faced with, teach them how to see the light in every situation, both good and bad.
Sure, you won’t be happy every day of the week but if you try to nourish the happiness in your life you will be happy for a large portion of it.
Of course, you will stumble every once in a while or feel a bit overwhelmed at times but don’ let that hold you back. You are stronger than that! Just because you break down from time to time does not mean that you are an unhappy mom or that you aren’t doing your job well. After all, you are human.
If you really want to be happy, don’t worry about what the world might think of you. It’s alright to feel down and show your angry side sometimes. Keeping this negativity in you for too long will just make matters worse and cause you to become a bitter person which nobody wants.
If your kids’ needs are met and you see them smile often then you are doing a solid job and deserve all the praise in the world.
By seeing the light in the eyes of your children you should be inspired to bring out that beautiful and positive side of you.
Your children accept that you’re a human being and even if you make some errors along the way, they will understand because they know you’re going through a difficult time, so do not worry about that at all. Your children need you to be strong and at ease with what you do. The last thing they want is for you to obsess over being spotless in everything you do because to them you are a superhero no matter what.
No matter how hard life may get, you are strong enough to face everything that comes your way, and being strong certainly doesn’t require perfection on your part.
