I use to be that mom

I use to be that mom

I use to be that mom that judged other mothers. I would comment about how they were raising their children, what they were wearing or what they feed their kids. I would smile and be nice to their faces and then turn around and talk about what bad mothers they were being because of something they did. I was being the biggest hypocrite there was because I was doing some of the things they were. I just never showed it. I wanted to be viewed as the perfect mother.

Does self comparison drive you crazy?

Self-comparison

I think our need to be perfect comes from many things but one main issue is comparison. We look at someone else’s life and think that they have it all together. They are doing everything right and they look great while doing it.  Well let me just tell you that no one has the shit together 100% of the time. There’s absolutely no way that is possible.

Trying to be Perfect at Everything

I use to be a perfectionist. I would drive myself crazy worrying about every little detail and trying to make everything just right. Not only did I drive myself crazy but I drove everyone around me crazy too. My kids had to have the perfect outfit, birthday and presents. Every time my husband did something to help me out it wasn’t good enough because he did it wrong. I would spend entire weekends cleaning my house so it looked amazing (which is next to impossible with 3 kids). I was getting burnt out trying to make my life look perfect.
