Last week, I was mumbling to myself how hard it is to be a mother. You have no time for yourself.. you are not allowed to rest. You cook, you do the laundry.. you feed the kids, mop the floor.. but you know, you can actually stop. Get rest and don’t mind them. Mother’s are not born to be a saint. We are human beings, and occasions like Mother’s Day made us feel that we are born to ‘sacrifice’ because of hte blah blah quotes. and though I love to use it, deep inside me, I loath it.
We are moms. BUT we are woman too.. we are individual and for us to be a more effective mothers, we should take care of ourselves first and foremost.
And that’s my message to all the moms out there. It is OK to feel guilty. It is OK to feel mad being a mom. It is OK to sometimes regret being a mom.. BUT it is NOT OK to turn your back to those little beings that you brought into this world. It’s not sacrifice, it’s called RESPONSIBILITY.
