Why are we so hard on ourselves, mamas? We are our own worst critics at times. Why is that?
I’ve said it once and I will say it again, mom guilt is a lie! It is the false messages that we as moms tell ourselves and somehow believe that we are failing at this thing called motherhood.
However, just because I know it’s a lie and I have strategies to overcome it, doesn’t mean I still do not fall victim to mom guilt at times.
Now is one of those times.
In this episode I share:
- how my chronic illness (multiple sclerosis) triggered my mom guilt
- why self-care is no longer a priority
- the reason I am done apologizing and making excuses
- why it’s important to take ownership over your life and focus on the things you love and enjoy
This episode is one of my most transparent episodes to date. I am sharing exactly how I am feeling and things I’ve struggled with lately.
I hope by sharing my experiences and how I am coping that I empower you to own your situation, feel the feels, but bounce back and jump back in when you are ready.
