“Women are seen as CARERS. The ones who can COPE.
Whatever life throws at them.
They will always cope.
On call… 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Whether their children are sick, there husband’s are out of work, or their parents are old and frail and need attention…
They will cope.
They will cook and clean, go out to work, attend to the needs of those around them.
AND THEY WILL COPE.
They may be suffering themselves with depression, violence in the home or struggling in a days of exhaustion to make ends meet.
BUT they will cope.
Strangely it is women themselves who believe this to be true.
So DEEP SEEDED is this belief THAT it can take enormous courage for women to admit
that they need help.
Frequently they will attempt to survive it alone
Falling helplessly into a deeper and darker depression.
Falling more and more trapped by the life they are leading.
Their suffering goes unseen by others
This has left a legacy of millions of women locked in a terrible torment left with little hope to escape.”
Even thought these poetic words were spoken over 20 years ago, I believe real moms still struggle with this. We fall short of our own standard of excellence, and then we feel insecure about not being the perfect wife with the perfect kids, perfect husband, perfect home, perfect friends, perfect marriage, and perfect body.
Here are 4 tips for those of you real moms out there who want to break this madness, escape the torment, and BE FREE.
