I’m afraid to tell anyone how I feel most days because I’m a mother and I worry someone will say I’m too depressed to be a good mom

    I don’t have kids, but having had a difficult childhood I think makes me qualified to tell you: all you need to do to be a “good mom” is do your best to make sure they’re fed, healthy, and loved.

    I’m sure you’re an amazing mother. I’m a mom myself, and I know that it’s a lot. We still need to be listened to and heard. Always remember you were someone before your kids, and you’re someone now ❤️ you are whole! Worrying about what others MIGHT say will hold you back from so much. In this case, healing and bettering yourself! Ya know what they say, you can’t pour from an empty cup. Please reach out if you’re ever in need. I can definitely relate ❤️

    The fact you feel guilty means you care, and that's what makes a good mom. My daughter is only 8 but she understands that I struggle with things, I think she understands my physical better because that's harder to hide from her but she is really good about things. She tells me all the time that she knows how much I love her and care about her and that it means the world to her. So especially if your kids seem happy, don't question yourself. We sometimes do better then we think.

    I'm not a mother but being a mom can be a stressful job! You're not a bad mom and I'm sure your kids are grateful to have you, please just take deep breaths and remember everything is gonna be alright💕

    I am so very sorry you feel this way. I have been right where you are. When you have kids (I have 4) people tend to act like you arent allowed to be depressed or anything. I'm here to tell you that IT IS OK TO NOT BE OK! It doesn't make you a bad mom. It makes you human. I'm here if you ever need to vent or cry or just complain.

    You are right to be concerned. I'm somewhat experiencing that but mine was WAY WORSE because I live in a very bad town. I won't get into it now, but if I can say anything to help you, IM GONNA!!!! People will use it against you. Find ONE or maybe two good friends that you can trust and talk to them only. Dammit, talk to me if you must!!!! But don't let people know that you're sad or stressed because they very instant they get mad at you they will use it against you. If you Google and see how many institutions in this country are under investigation for unlawfully removing kids from their families simply for profit, you will understand why I'm telling you this. Not only is this my experience, but I joined an online support group for this specific thing. I met a lady whose grandchildren were taken from her daughter and put in the home of a man that's a 3 time convicted child predator. She's been fighting for years trying to get her grandkids to no avail. And my goodness if you heard my story, you wouldn't believe it. 😥😥😥 I'm not saying hold it to yourself, I'm just saying be careful who you trust!!!!
