I want to write this post to all soon to be mothers and to all mothers who sometimes feel alone like me.
I am tired of watching perfect mothers showing me how easy raising kids is. They make it look like a walk in the park. They look perfect all the time. Their makeup is on the pint, the house is always clean and organized, and of course, they’ve got everything is correctly labeled. Their kids are perfect, the husband always helps, and they seem like they have everything figured out. They are so perfect and so fake af.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have anything against them. I know that they choose to show only the positive side of motherhood, marriage, family life. That’s their choice. And my choice is to call a bs on their perfect life.
You see, my problem is, that a mother that is already having a bad day, will open social media and will be blinded will all that perfection. And she will start doubting herself. She will think that she is a failure because her house doesn’t always look perfect, she doesn’t only feed her kids organic. They sometimes look more like a hot mess, than a hot mama. That is my problem with them showing their fake life.
What’s wrong with showing mothers that everything is not always perfect. I know I try to be, God knows I try, and I am failing miserably. But you know what. I don’t need to be that picture-perfect Instagram mama. I don’t. My kids don’t need a perfect mom, my husband doesn’t need me to be perfect. I just need to be happy.
So, please, for the love of God, stop comparing yourself to those perfect Insta moms. Because we all know that they fake their entire life fo social media. They are just like you and me.
And in case no one told you this today, you are an amazing mom, amazing wife, and you are doing great. You are amazing and beautiful, even with that messy bun on your head, and in those sweat pants. You rock them girl. And treat your self a glass of wine or two, you deserve it.
