Stop comparing yourself

Moms, we have to stop comparing ourselves to other moms, to other women. We are all guilty of this, including myself. I do this all the time. I see other moms, how they are with their kids, how they are with others, how they look, how their kids act and I am not the same mom, I don’t look the same, I don’t act the same, my son is not the same. It makes me feel like a horrible mother and like I’m not enough.

The truth is that we are all dealing with our own struggles. We are all dealing with some sort of issue with our kids, our lives, our weight, our hair, etc. etc. etc. None of us has it all together, even if we put on that face when we go out in the world. Our kids are not always behaved, our houses are not always clean, and as much as we want to do that awesome birthday party we pinned on Pinterest, we most of the time fall short….or in my case, fail completely.

Ladies, we need to talk to each other more, be more open with each other. It’s not only healthy and good, but it’s necessary I think. We need to be honest about the things we struggle with, even when we feel it could be the worst possible thing to say. Because I guarantee you that someone out there is struggling with the exact same thing. We are not alone in our struggles!

What do you think? Do you often feel like you’re alone in your struggles? Do you wish women would have more open, honest conversations?

  1. YES! I struggle with feeling like I am alone & I’m guilty of constantly comparing. I wish we could be honest and open with one another in order to help edify and strengthen one another in Christ. I truly believe that is what God meant when he said for us to confess our sins to one another, as well as for the older to teach the younger. I believe that means struggles and failures as well. We NEED one another. Thank you for your honesty sister! 🙂

    1. I agree. I believe that God did create us to do that, but we’ve become so bogged down by our own minds, that we fear talking to each other at all about REAL things. Thank you for joining in on the conversation.
