I know you’re in the trenches just trying to make it one day, one hour, one minute at a time.
I know somedays you feel like you just can’t do it and you want to cry. You want to cry hard. It’s okay, Mama.
I know you think you are failing your kids, your husband, even yourself.
But Mama, you’re not failing anyone.
I know public places can be overwhelming. What if you lose a child or one gets taken? I have been there too, Mama.
I know sometimes you dislike you’re kids.
Somedays, I dislike mine too.
I know you are praying hard Mama. Keep praying. God hears you, and He hasn’t forgotten you.
I know that you are ashamed and feeling guilty, sometimes wondering if this is the life you were cut out for. It is okay Mama. I have those days too.
I know it is hard to get out of bed sometimes because sleep deprivation is pure torture and it has sucked out every ounce of energy you may have in you. I know this form of exhaustion all too well Mama, especially when my babies were first born. Sometimes it turns into a depression. I know you love being a Mama, but some days are just covered in clouds. It’s okay Mama.
I know that you might be seeing a therapist, someone to talk to and help you through this season. Good for you Mama.
I know you may need to see a Doctor, get some help, and get on some anxiety or depression meds. It’s okay Mama. You need to care of yourself.
Sometimes the hardest thing to do is just recognizing that you can’t do it alone.
Mama, sometimes you have to take the first steps to be the change you want to see.
I know most days you have not a single clue what you’re doing Mama.
You’re not alone, that is truly what Motherhood is.
Love yourself a little more Mama because you are in the trenches taking it one day, one hour, one minute at a time! And you’re not alone, Mama.
Sincerely, I’m in the trenches too.
I have been struggling with anxiety ever since I became a Mom. It never really felt like it was an issue for me, but then my triplets came and the Postpartum kicked in hard. I was neck deep in sleep deprivation which only led to PPD and Anxiety. I went on meds 3 months after the babies were born to help with my anxiety attacks. It really helped me. About 6 months ago, I found myself in the same position. So, I saw my Doctor again. I went back on my meds. I also started taking Wink Anxiety Drops which have also helped my day to day. I am trying to do more things for myself, taking the time for actual self care. It is not always easy as a Mom, but it is so important!! Love your Way Mamas!!!
