I am exhausted. Even though I know what would make me feel better I don’t have the energy to take action…or maybe I just forget to use the tools that I have.
My partner means well, but he just doesn’t understand the mental load that I take on. I would love for my partner to support me, but I have such a hard time asking him or figuring out exactly what I need from him.
I want to feel happy, fulfilled and at ease, but I spend many of my days cleaning up after everyone else, making dinners that no one wants to eat and trying to keep track of playdates and carpool schedules. There are moments of joy and fun, but I want MORE. I am not depressed or thinking of harming myself, but I am a bit anxious about life in general.
Sometimes I feel like I am just not built for motherhood and I constantly worry that I am messing up during what I always believed was going to be the best time in my life.
I am tired of dealing with meltdowns and wish I had a magic wand to stop the whining and morning battles over shoes, or something just as ridiculous. Couldn’t there be a powder that I could sprinkle on all of my children to make them more cooperative and less cranky.
We have so many blessings in our life and I don’t understand why my kids act the way they do sometimes. When they were born couldn’t have someone handed me a manual on how to communicate with them and help them reach their fullest potential? I love them more than anything and want only the best for them.
I know I am here for a reason and I don’t want to wait until my kids are older to make an impact on the world or really enjoy my life. There is also a part of me that is afraid of burning out or getting sick.
I still remember the days when I could sleep in after going out for a great dinner and staying up past midnight without worrying about being exhausted or cranky the next day.
I am hopeful though and ready to enjoy motherhood and life. I am ready to feel at ease and no longer overwhelmed by anxiety and stress. I am tired of being tired!
I am ready to THRIVE!”
