Being a mom is the most rewarding thing I think anyone of us can experience, but I also feel it is one of the hardest challenges we will ever face. The issue is, so many of us can feel alone in the journey and feel we are the only ones feeling this conflict of emotions. The truth is, we all experience worry from time to time and motherhood can certainly make us feel anxious. Which is why I thought it would be a wonderful time to share with you some of the most common worries we can all experience, and hopefully ease those anxious feelings in the process. Children are blessings, yes, but it’s also wise for our own sanity to feel comforted that we are not the only ones to worry.
One of the biggest things we as moms can worry about is the health of our children. Any high fever, cough and cold can certainly send our worry emotion into overdrive, especially as a first-time mom. It’s natural to be concerned as to whether your child is healthy or experiencing something nasty which is why it’s always advisable to seek guidance from a local doctor. But It’s understandable that appointments may be in the future, and the truth be told we would like an answer there and then as to the welfare of our babies. This is why phone applications like Babylon could really help put our minds at ease. Getting answers from professionals instead of worrying ourselves over Google search results.
As a homeschooling mom and one child in high school, I can see why school can be such a huge worry to mothers. From wondering whether they are getting the best out of the educational environment to whether they will have friends in their class. Homeschooling means I can control the environment somewhat, but that doesn’t mean to say that the worry goes away. We all want to ensure that our children learn as much as they can in the most positive of manners. If you do feel a little anxious over this then speaking to other mothers or even the school itself could enable you to put your mind at ease a little.
I don’t think there is any mother out there who won’t worry about the development of their child. Sure milestones and ages are not necessarily important as each child develops at their own rate, but it doesn’t stop us questioning whether everything is fine. Again communicating these concerns will be the only way to put your mind at ease, every child is different after all.
Our own mindset
What mom doesn’t worry about their own mindset? Whether that is feeling crazy by the end of the day, or even feeling the loneliness that can come with motherhood. It isn’t spoken about enough, and it is so important to surround yourself with positive people who will help support you. Especially on those days where you are feeling tired and drained.
Of course, there are so many other things moms concern themselves with such as our inability to catch up on sleep, or our child’s fussiness with eating, but at least we can all agree that a problem can be halved when spoken about. More often than not, it can make you feel much calmer about the situation. Surround yourself with people who care, and make sure you are airing out your concerns and not keeping those anxieties inside.
Share with me in the comments what your top concerns are as a mom or parent and lets all help ease these anxieties together. Many blessings to all the moms out there!
