I recall myself parenting with full of energy at the age of 20. Beautiful memories unfold in the long run of parenting, somewhere i feel we lose ourselves in the process of taking care of our loved ones. As a mother of two, a teenager and a budding teen frames my peace into pieces of advices pouring from every corner of the world . The title home maker doesn’t define a 10 to 5 job but the whole of 24 x 7hrs juggling between your kids and your family . The weight of societal expectations onto our shoulders should be dusted away, if not no mom in the world will sleep in peace. It’s the life long learning of how to be a better version of ourselves in each stage of our lives, which in return will help us to grow in the areas of skill – sets.
why is it become that necessary to define our mental health and self care since in this world of technology where everything is just a touch away, we are been carried out in the name of comparison of our true selves and in the game of parenting, we just lose ourselves into so many knitted knots which we cant think off and that is directly affected on our mental peace, which we brawl at others to vent it out or just infuse into a volcano of feelings. In the run of morning routines, cooking, sports practices, clingy baby stages, working full time job, missing your meal times, I could go on like this but in this journey of trying to save your family and your house from falling apart we are lost ourselves somewhere. The lively I, fades its cherishing shades into the shadow of gradual journey and stressful life.
