And here’s my final paragraph for my “how to find time for yourself and stop feeling guilty” post.
I know I should’ve written the body first but didn’t find the time… I might change it when the time comes (soon!).
The truth about parenting
You can only love others, including your child, as much as you love yourself.
This means finding time for yourself does not mean you’re neglecting your child.
On the contrary. Being a happier mom will make you a better mom.
You don’t need to win the lottery or quit your job. You just need to change your mindset.
You don’t need to be perfect. Or seem perfect to others. You’re enough as you are.
Give yourself a little break when you need it. Learn to say no. Don’t try to please everyone.
Ask for help. Don’t go through it alone. Understand that there is no such thing as perfect parenting.
You’re doing your best.
Be proud of yourself.
You deserve it.
