I received a lot of feedback resulting from my last post – and for that, if I haven’t already I thank you all. I didn’t write that last post looking for sympathy, okay maybe just a little empathy, but for the reason I blog in the first place – to get it off my chest. We all have to find ways of coping with our lot don’t we. The message I received loud and clear from everyone was that I was not alone. I was not alone in feeling a little trapped, a little over & under whelmed, and most of all under valued.
Not one of you said to me – Suck it up princess, you had all them babies now deal with it! Not even an anonymous troll, how about that. But, I may need a boot up the arse every now and then and all of your messages did just that.
It really surprised me how many messages I got from Mother’s who felt under-valued in being at home. And I think that was it, that was… is my problem. I have to find value in what I do each day. And I guess when I look around this big crowded house of ours, I can. It may take me a while, I may have to cope with things other parents never will have to, but I think I can. 😉
