Because we want the best for our families, a mother's job is never done. When we admit we are tired and stretched thin however, we're told that we need to let go... to surrender control and stop trying to do so much.
But what if you can't? What if you don't want to? What if you believe things will fall apart if you decide to let go of what you're holding and you're not willing to let that happen?
For some moms letting go is not an option. There's too much at stake. I know because I've been there in my own family... unable to decide whose happiness was more important -- my family's or my own. I didn't want to choose. So I found another way.
When you're overwhelmed by children who need you like crazy, or by a partner who doesn't understand why you're stressed (or judges you for it)... when you're struggling with a severe shortage of time and energy, anxiety and overwhelm are unavoidable.
Conventional wisdom has us thinking that talking about a problem will lead to a solution, and that couldn't be farther from the truth. No amount of analyzing the conflict in your marriage, or your partner's flaws will lead to a healthy, happy marriage. In fact, the more we think about what we don't like, the less control we have over it.
Luckily we have a choice. We don't have to stay in a web of frustration and overwhelm forever. We can absolutely have a connected family and personal freedom at the same time, and I'm happy to show you how.
