Are you wanting more support and community in your life?
Are you looking for a safe place to express how you're truly, authentically feeling?
Are you looking for a sisterhood to walk alongside you on your motherhood journey? Celebrate and be celebrated when times go well. Hold and support each other when times are tough.
Motherhood can often feel exhausting, overwhelming and lonely. You're with people (little people!) a lot, but sometimes you just need other moms to talk to. Moms going through the same struggles, having the same fears... finding out you're not alone.
The moms at the park are great to chat with about how little sleep you got last night, and how your 1 year-old just took his first steps. But what about the deeper stuff? Who do you turn to when you've been crying non-stop because you and your partner keep fighting? Or how you've been yelling at your toddler and you're afraid you're going to mess her up (just like when you were a child and your mom yelled at you a lot...) Or that you're so anxious about going back to work and leaving your baby at daycare.
That's the purpose of a support group- a place where you can bring it ALL. And sometimes we also talk about the lighter stuff:) And we celebrate the good times and cheer for each other when things go well!
You were never meant to do it alone. There are so many benefits to having a community behind you! You end up feeling calmer and more supported. And when you're feeling good about your life, you can model that to your children. They feel your energy shifting. They see you being more patient and relaxed when you're with them. They see you embracing your imperfection and practicing emotional responsibility. Then they learn how to be that way too!
Who you are deeply impacts your children. Way more than any parenting books you've read, any tricks or behavioural strategies you've tried, or anything you tell them.
Finding support is key to being at your best as a mother.
