That evening, I purchased 'She's Gonna Blow: Real help for moms dealing with anger', by Julie Ann Barnhill. Julie starts off talking about the first time she spoke on anger at a Hearts at Home conference. She was hoping 12 women signed up for her session. 1 out of 5 attendees signed up, she had to speak twice on 2 days!
People. Women make it seem like being a mom is the greatest, most wonderful thing in the world. It is. But it really isn't at the same time. Why do we have to perpetuate this myth that momhood is perfect and easy. It's time we came out of the cleaning closet and are honest about life. Honest about ourselves.
I wish someone had told me how frustrating and, at times, anger-producing being a stay@home mom is. Maybe I would have gone in to it prepared, instead of beating myself up about being a horrible mother.
What do you wish someone had told you? At any stage in life at all. What do you wish people had told you?
