To the mom who does it all without asking for help even though you’re breaking down inside… I see you. Being a mom is hard.

To the mom who does it all without asking for help even though you’re breaking down inside… I see you.

Being a mom is hard. Your job is taking care of other people and making sure that everybody else is doing okay. We get so caught up in that role of helping others that we forget that we need somebody to help us too.

Because of mom shaming and Internet bullies, we also have the added pressure of pleasing everybody. We have to look strong. We have to look put together. We have to look the part. But that’s so far from reality.

Motherhood is a beautiful mess. It’s okay to not have it all together. It’s okay that your house is a disaster. It’s okay that you’re late wherever you go because it takes an hour to get in the car. It’s okay that you’re hair is grown out and has been in a bun for three days. It’s okay that you live in leggings and your husbands tee shirt. And ITS OKAY TO ASK FOR HELP!

You don’t have to be superwoman. Ask your partner to wake up at night sometimes. Call a friend to bring you dinner. Let your mom babysit. Just ask for help. There’s no shame in it.

It takes a village to raise kids so use your village.

Do you ever feel like it’s all on you? Do you have trouble asking for help? Do you have people around you who are willing to help? @aj_kellss

Yet she has a ring 💍 on her finger. I wonder if dad is aware of this “look at me” post. 🧐

I feel like asking for help sometimes is necessary though. Children deserve happy mothers too. Everyone needs help here and there, it’s natural and healthy.

What about us who were broken up with while pregnant and the father wants nothing to do with their child…. how do we over come that?

I’ve actually done the opposite! I just accepted that I need to ask for help, and to accept however it’s done… even if it’s not done how I would do it!

Very true! Sometimes it’s harder when that help is there. 😞

I’m lucky to have my husband, he is a partner and does not “help”, he does his half. And taking care of everyone is not my job. I get paid for my job. My motherhood is just the most important thing I do, not the only thing I am

Love this! 🙌 I live 8 hours from my family and I feel so alone most of the time. My husband works long hours. Motherhood is not easy, but so worth it ❤️

She said it, I’m standing by it. Sometimes doing it yourself is quicker and easier than explaining it to your husband
