Recently, I have felt completely depleted and in all honesty I don’t know how I am going to handle this.
It is my own personal issue, yet when I try to discuss it with someone so I can talk my way through it, they always want to fix it for me.
It just shows how much my friends and family care, but they can’t fix it.
Life has a way of beating down on us and if life doesn’t get in the way – I do.
We have all heard the saying that “We are our own worse enemy.” It is true. How do we manage to take something simple and turn it into the most complicated issue on the face of the earth?
I’m a working mother who struggles.
- I struggle with my appearance.
- I struggle with my chores, which never seem to end.
- I struggle to leave my son at daycare.
The struggles can go on and on.
Everyone has struggles and they’re not comparable because we are all at different places in our lives. Yet, we constantly compare our lives to that of others either to bring us down or to make us feel better about our life choices.
That is not how I want to live my life. I’m tired of comparing; it sucks the joy right out of life and makes me feel as though I am a failure. The reality is that I am doing my very best and my son and husband know that.
There is no solution to my struggles except for a change in the way I think (only I can control that) and to give my burdens over to my Abba Father.
“Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; He will never let the righteous be shaken.” Psalms 55:22
For those of you dealing with struggles today, just know you aren’t alone and do your best not to compare yourself to others. Find something that brings you joy and hang on to it. Do not be shaken, stand firm!
I will be hanging on to my little one tonight for he is a great joy to my soul!
Wishing you all the best,
