In episode 07: Parenting is Hard, PERIOD! my husband, Joel, is the special guest this week and we dive deep into all things parenting. The ups and downs, highs and lows. All of it! Parenting is hard and fun all at the same time. However, sometimes social media can blur our vision and tarnish how we see ourselves as parents. For example, when we see an influencer or blogger post their kids online, we begin to go down the dark comparison hole. I'm guilty of this too and have found myself doing it multiple times. I will watch other moms do perfect crafts with their children and automatically feel mom guilt and shame come to the surface because I'm not doing the same.
Comparison is truly a thief of joy and we need to step back and stop comparing ourselves so much with everyone else. Social media has all the beautiful highlight reels of people's lives, including mine and it's not a place we should compare. It's not accurate because it doesn't show the truly hard parts of being a parent. Parenting is hard!
