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.

Learning to Love Yourself

One of the hardest things to do is to learn to love yourself. With my need to be perfect all the time I never felt I was good enough. I always compared myself to other people who I thought were getting it right. I never took time for me because I felt I needed to keep going to keep up with all the other “perfect” moms out there.

How I get get through my mornings

 

In a perfect world I would jump out of bed before my alarm goes off, workout and be ready to start my day without even drinking any coffee. But unfortunately I don’t live in a perfect world. My morning routine is usually the same Monday through Friday and involves a lot of pep talk to get me moving. I thought I would take you through my morning because I like looking at other people’s schedule and seeing what they do so I thought it would be fun to show you what I do.

How I’m learning to let my kids be messy

I knew I was going overboard on organizing when my son said he didn’t want to play with his toys because he would make a mess on the floor. Kids should not be afraid to play because mom is going to freak out over the mess. Kids are messy that’s just a fact. By my actions I was telling my kids that it’s not alright to be messy. That being messy is bad. I knew then that something had to change.

Doing Away with Mom Guilt

Mom guilt – we all have it. There is always something that we feel we are doing wrong or something that we see other moms doing better than us. It’s always there in the back of our minds making us feel like horrible moms. We need to stop and just realize that we are doing the best we can.

The “perfect” Christmas

 

The perfect christmas

Christmas is my favorite holiday. I love the music, lights, and peaceful feeling I get. The best thing is seeing my kids faces when they see the presents under the tree. I use to go overboard trying to make the pile of presents look huge. I would get things from the dollar store (that they never played with) to make it look like more. But then I realized that I was spending money on things that they never even touched or the toy would end up on their floors. It created more clutter which then would stress me out. But again I was trying to make everything perfect.
