Struggling as a stay at home mom
Ever since I became a mom I've been struggling with identity issues and have had trouble settling into this new role. Since my 2nd came along, this has gotten worse.
I've suffered from depression in the past and now it's ongoing (can't afford therapy).
My kids constantly complain about what we feed them and how we do things for them. They're constantly demanding and want things RIGHT NOW.
Hubby works 10-12 hr days so he sees a fraction of what I deal with on a regular basis. I'm finding it very hard to not resent him.
I try my hardest to have that "me" time but with hubby working long hours it doesn't always happen so I try to grab it in small amounts (and the kids usually don't let me). By the time they're in bed, I just want to go to bed myself.
Thanks for letting me vent (I don't have anyone really to talk to about this stuff....)
-THE END-So pity being a stay at home mom, right?...one of my friend had said to me once that mom like me (who not working & just wasting my time staying at home) don't earn salary, don't get end year bonus, working at home like forever, don't have time for herself, have soo much 'pleasure' facing cranky kids, no more ambitious like other carrier mom & the bad list goes on......
But I believe, every path that we take & every option that we choose, will have its pro & contra...it's depend on how we accept it...we have our own reason for choosing that path...always remember, must put 'redha' & 'ikhlas' all the time in our heart no matter if you are stay at home mom or working mom because what you do is also count as ibadah...& at the end Allah will grant us a reward for that, for the ibadah that we did...
