Super MOM! The Parent Counselor (T.P.C.)
As a working mother you may always feel like you are being pulled from left to right. I can relate! This is because we are and we do not always know when to say STOP! I have come to the realization that a small part of me likes being busy. It’s in the ideal time that I do not feel accomplished. This too could be a dangerous thing for many moms. Post-partum is a real thing and many new moms are trying to be super moms, like myself, and do not give the appropriate time to stop and take care of yourself. Due to my training I was able to recognize this and take a step back. Many of you do not have the same insight as I do and drive yourselves down the path towards depression.
That tricky thing call depression can creep up on you and take you buy surprise. Don’t fall into this pattern. Take some time for you. I am lucky to have a husband whom could understand this. He would take the kids so I could have some me time, or even some girl time. Send me to get my hair done and so on and so forth. Now moms don’t forget dad either. Men to can fall into the hands of depression after a new child/children come into the picture. Let him out with the fellas or send him to get some needed individual time. With all this one on one time don’t fall short and not address the most important relationship. You both as a couple. Couple time is much needed, both of you making the other feel special, sexy and loved. The two as a unit are what allowed this special chapter called parenthood to begin. Don’t let it fall to the waist side due to neglect.
Supper moms are over rated, but healthy happy moms are what everyone needs. So put down the cell phone, turn that paper over and all pens down. It’s time to get back to what’s important and that’s family, love and support for one another.
This is just a friendly reminder from your local T.P.C (The Parent Counselor).
LIVE, LAUGH AND LOVE!
