F U you mum guilt! 🖕🏻
I preach a lot about mum guilt and how I have mastered it but the truth is that even now it still round houses me in the face from time to time. The difference is I’ve learnt to not let it stop me!
I was that mum that couldn’t bare to be away from her children. The mum that thought if I left my kids they would never forgive me, the mum that thought, who I am to deserve time on my own away from my children, the mum that thought how can I ask someone else to look after my kids. I have 3 children and they are my responsibility! I don’t deserve me time!
I was that mum that even if I did allow myself time to be me I would still feel like I needed to check on my kids 59 million times, the mum that constantly whittled when they weren’t with me, the mum that felt I couldn’t relax even if I did allow myself a night off. Why?! Because I’m a mum and you gotta plod on no matter what, my time will come when the bambino’s are older or at least that is what I thought!
Being away from my kids does not mean I am a shit mum, it does not mean I don’t love my kids, it does not mean I can’t cope. It simply means I need some time to remember who that woman was before she had kids! It means I appreciate those little people more and they appreciate me, it means that my mum cup is full to the brim and Instead of losing my shiz, I can control it because I have more patience. It means that I am giving my kids the best possible version of me!
You see mum guilt happens because you are a good mum! You care and absolutely want the best for those little people! But how can you do that when you don’t look after you?! You know that woman you were before kids? She still exists.....make sure you let her out to play every now and again 🙌🏻
