Inadequacy

I hope you can tell by the title that this isn't a happy post, so if you are looking for one come back another day.
I'm a little overwhelmed with life. I'm lacking the patience I would like for my family, which I'm sure affects their attitudes. My kids are going through stages that are new to me, so we are all trying to figure it out, as parents and children. I'm having a hard time being happy and content, which DOESN'T help my eating issues. So then I'm not happy with my health goals. I just want life to be perfect, and it's not close to that. I have no reason not to be content, but I'm not. It's just one of those days. Usually I'd just keep it to myself, but for some reason I thought I'd put some of what I'm feeling here. Hopefully this will help me enjoy the good when it comes. I hope tomorrow is a better day, so I can be a better mother, wife and just a better me. Hopefully I'll have the desire to try better tomorrow.

If we were closer I would come get the rugrats for the weekend so you could have a break. Life with 3 is just crazy isn't it??!!!!

I think this is a stage that we all go through ourselves. Sometimes, life can just be frustrating and not happy. I've found that a lot has to do with my attitude, but it is difficult to change! I hope that you get through it sooner than later - we've all been there! I'll be thinking of you... Most important, take care of yourself!!!

I remember those days. Some days you were in control and other days you weren't. I'm so glad that you are expressing it. I held everything in thinking that I wasn't a good mom because I couldn't handle it. If you can talk to someone they let you know that you are normal. I think you are doing a wonderful job. Give me a call if you ever need someone to bounce off your feelings. Love you lots.

I remember those days. Feeling very inadequate. I didn't want to say anything because I felt that it meant that I wasn't perfect. I'm so glad that you were able to say something, because everyone goes though those feeling, I wished I realized that when I was raising you guys. Call me if you ever want to express what your going though. You are a wonderful daughter and a mother. I love you!

It's okay to pout and be down every once in a while. I've even been known to throw a temper tantrum!

Things will get better....
