We can be really hard on ourselves. Sometimes this leads to be a perfectionist.·
The truth is that being perfect is an illusion. It is impossible because we are human and we will make mistakes, we will have weaknesses – and that is ok.
We strive for perfection because somewhere inside we may struggle with not feeling good enough.
But right here, right now – you are good enough. Even with your weakness and challenges. You are a good mom, even if you don’t have it all figured out.
The perfect mom does not exist – let go of trying to be her – it is a big set up for suffering. You are doing the best you can right now that that is okay.
Mothering a new baby is hard and you are doing the best you ca – and that is enough. Show yourself the compassion you would show your friend – you deserve it.
