Single Motherhood: I'm Trying to Be Supermom & I'm Failing (But Here's Why That's OK!) by Jessica Lawrence
"Money is the root of all evil" could be true, but I tend to think comparison is the root of all evil. If you read my post about social media, you'd see that I have often found myself comparing my life to others. Basically, I'm trying to do it all.
- I'm trying to have my daughter in activities that stimulate her.
- I'm trying to give back to my community by being involved on her school's education council.
- I'm trying to give back to the figure skating club that we both belong to.
And guess what? I'm failing – miserably.
It's tough for me to admit I'm failing. I'm too prideful for my own good. Heck, I stayed in a marriage that was long over before I admitted it and left. I didn't realize how bad it was until I was recently so ill that I couldn't leave my bed for days. I was so stressed out that I didn't even know what was fun anymore. Thankfully, I've had a few days to regroup and focus on what I need and what I don't.
I hate quitting, and I hate not giving 100 percent, but at what cost? At feeling so spread thin that it makes me cry?
You know what? It's OK to fail.
