Tired as a Mother?
Tell me if this has this ever happened to you. The kids are finally in bed and you decide to relax on the couch to watch a movie and 20 minutes into the movie you're out! Then your spouse decides to be cute and take a picture of you because you look like a piece of spaghetti thrown at the wall. Yup, that's me up there. Parental burnout AKA mom fatigue, is real. Being a mom is a 24/7 job that is physically, emotionally and mentally demanding.
Constantly tired - now matter how much coffee you chug?
Feeling overwhelmed or spread too thin?
Say yes when you know you should say no?
Held in the way you truly feel because you don't want to burden others with your problems?
Wondered what is wrong with you, why are you broken, useless, not good enough?
Feel like you've lost control?
Crippled yourself with the negative self talk in your head?
Feel guilty or shameful of your mood swings and the way you snapped at your kids or spouse?
Lost your sense of self or purpose?
Felt numb and helpless as your world is slowly crumbling around you?
Ever typed the words "I'm fine" with your eyes full of tears?
Unfortunately, I can say yes to EVERY. SINGLE. ONE.
This isn't a badge of honor and I'm certainly not proud of it, I just want you to know you are not alone in this. Before working with me, so many of my clients felt like they had to suffer in silence. Constantly comparing their life to the happy, perfectly posed highlight reels on social media and feeling like a complete failure when their life didn't match up to someone else's.
Motherhood can be one of the best things that we experience in our lives, but there is also a dark side that we don't often speak about. Why is that? Why do we feel like we have to pretend to have a perfect life? I know for me, I spent my life trying to make others feel good because I knew how bad the pain felt and I didn't want them to feel it. I finally realized, it's not my burden to shoulder.
Now let's get one thing out of the way, I'm not a doctor. However, I have created a realistic, shame free approach to help empower moms to overcome mom burnout and quarantine fatigue to prevent falling down a depressive spiraling shit storm. With my Soul Powered Life Method, you STOP and reconnect to YOUR reality.
I've lost women in my life because they became overwhelmed with the burden of putting out a picture perfect, motherly image to the world and were too afraid to be judged by asking for help. As someone who silently struggled with depression for 24 years, coping and masking my pain with drugs and alcohol - I get it. I've been in the depths of despair and constantly felt like I was never good enough. Once I finally broke free, I made a promise to myself, therefore making it my mission to be the person (to other women) that I needed during my struggles. I was lonely, scared and consumed with guilt, shame, and fear and I never want another woman to feel like she's the only one going through this or pressured to wear a smile as she's crumbling on the inside.
After becoming a mom 10 years ago, my world changed. How can such a small baby bring you so much joy and at the same time make you feel you are doing everything wrong and absolutely failing at this mom thing??
I fell into the perfectionism trap, faking a smile, trying to prove my awesomely independent mom power by never asking for help when I needed it, holding myself together to be strong for others while I was crumbling on the inside.
Being a mom changes you, but that doesn't mean you should have to put your emotions, feelings and needs to the side to make others happy.
Empowering moms with radical self acceptance and awareness to overcome mom burnout and prevent the downward, depressive shit storm spiral we often find ourselves at the bottom of. Two years ago I felt I could finally breathe again, I want to share that sense of freedom and relief with you through my Soul Powered Life Method.
