Do you ever just wish that you weren’t a woman??!
Like honestly, the way women are made up – over thinking things, stressing about minor things, getting offended, getting hurt at the silliest of things, worry, worry, worrying. Stressing about what weight they are, what colour their hair is / skin is.
Why did that mum not say hello to me this morning at the school gate?
What did the teacher mean when she said he wasn’t great with scissors?
The husband only gave me 1 kiss on the way out the door this morning, have I annoyed him?
Maybe I shouldn’t have said that, maybe she/he took it the wrong way?
Oh, I hope I haven’t offended her, I didn’t mean it to sound like that.
Do you think she’s annoyed at me?
Have the kids had a balanced diet today?
Are they going to get burnt alive in this sun?
Am I stimulating them enough / too much?
I NEED to have ‘such n such’ over for dinner or something soon.
Do they need to see a Dr about that cough?
Do they have friends at school?
Are they accepted by their friends?
Do they behave?
Are they keeping up with what’s expected of them?
The ironing pile is really mounting up it needs sorted ‘now’.
My windows are stinkin’ – must get them cleaned.
The floors need hoovered.
The bathroom needs cleaned.
The bedrooms tidied.
The kitchen floors mopped.
I’ve hardly played with the kids today.
There just aren’t enough hours in the day.
Can we afford to do …x.y and z.
I’m such a bad mummy.
I’m such a bad friend.
I’m such a bad wife / daughter / sister.
Maybe it’s just me. I am a bit of a worrier / stresser / over thinker. A bit of a perfectionist. I can’t help it. It’s just the way I am. There are times it’s a good thing – it means you always try to be the best that you can be, the best that you can be for others. But we women need to remember that, we are enough.
I read this article just the other day and sighed a big sigh at the end of it. I think it’s something I need to read every day http://www.scissortailsilk.com/?s=what+women+need+to+say+daily
