Being a mother is fulfilling and rewarding. It is such a wonderful opportunity to give life to someone and do everything you can to provide everything for your child. However, there are days when you are faced with several challenges. Some of the common issues that mothers like you face include financial difficulty, infidelity of other spouse or stubbornness of a teenager and even pressure at work. When these problems surface all at the same time, there is a high possibility that you would feel depression or other negative emotions.
Motherhood is said to be one of the most significant chapters in a woman’s life. It is that period when everything is unfamiliar, scary, and exciting at the same time. Once you’ve entered motherhood, there’s no going back. Your life will change forever, and some things will never be the same. Some people think that being a mother is a simple job, but it’s not. There are a lot of struggles that all moms must face on a daily basis. In addition to that, there are also certain things that only mothers would understand.
I don’t know where to start this blog since I feel a little bit exhausted and stressed lately. I was thinking about my daughter who suddenly changed. She recently went cold and distant that’s why I wasn’t able to do anything. I had problems sleeping at night thinking of the things I have said that made her hate her mom. But then it hit me – maybe it was indeed my fault after all.
Being a parent doesn’t happen overnight – it requires a lot of commitment. You have to understand that there are restrictions on providing kids their needs and giving them their freedom. You just don’t give them everything they ask you to give them or let them do anything they want. You have to be very careful in deciding things for them, especially on those times that they might think that they don’t need your assistance in the decision making.
There are a few times when moms and their children feel like they belong to different sections of the world. The difference in choices, expectations, and wishes are issues that produce clashes and misunderstanding between them. Moms will always feel like their children are doing everything wrong and they have to make it right. On the other hand, their children will misunderstand this course of action as being a controlling parent with overboard expectations. It is just one of the examples of misunderstood motherly behaviors which we are going to talk about in this article.
Being a career woman with a husband and child can be quite taxing and challenging role to do. Doing paperwork and then cooking for dinner or having a meeting then rushing to the nursery due to certain circumstances is just examples of these stressful situations. However, some proper time management and planning ahead can make it possible and easier to do. Doing it may be hard at first, but things will go smoother as time goes by (well, most of the time).
Not every woman has a disposition of being a mother and building a family right away. It is especially true for females who have busy careers, want to continue living a carefree life, and those who don’t want to get married and have children. However, it is hard to brush off the maternal instinct of wanting to be a mother as the years pass. Then, you start questioning yourself if you are ready to be a mother. If this is the case, then it wouldn’t hurt to look for signs if you already have what it takes to be one. As women, this is a crucial phase in our lives which needs deep thinking and consideration.
