Did you know that? Maybe you actually do know that, but in the mists of providing for everyone else it gets lost. Maybe you believe you matter, but others make you feel like you don’t. Maybe you are told you complain, are selfish, or don’t do enough. Maybe you don’t get a response at all.
Whatever is causing you to feel like you don’t matter, you do. Know this. It is true.
Lately, I have been reading a lot from other moms about how they can’t do it all. They feel like failures. Question their worth because others seem to have it together. They don’t. I am convinced we are all just faking it and hoping for the best.
We can say, why bother it is never enough. My needs don’t matter. My family doesn’t care. These are messages we hear or tell ourselves. They are not true.
The thing is, your needs matter. Maybe you haven’t figured out how to say it in a way that you are heard. Maybe your loved ones haven’t learned how to really listen.
Whatever it is, know you matter. Don’t listen to the little voice in your heard telling you different.
No one gives hugs like you. No one else’s kisses heal like yours. No one worries like you. In all the chaos of motherhood, it is easy to get lost. It is easy to feel unappreciated. You are appreciated even if those around can’t tell you. You matter, moms matter.
