Understanding the SuperMom Trap

We sacrifice ourselves for mommy hood and for careers, we get lost in conference calls and paperwork, school plays and soccer practices. We forget about ourselves as we stay up into the early hours finishing work, or sewing that Halloween costume, that was not done even though we were on the go non-stop all day. We just keep going.

By understanding what makes us buy into the illusion that the way to happiness is through being SuperMom we can start to understand why we neglect who we are and where we want our lives to go. Understanding will bring about a clarity, a hope, and a desire to reclaim ourselves, our real selves and not just this identity that we created. It takes a desire to reconnect with our inner selves, a willingness to abandon the out-dated expectations and the commitment to stop trying to fit into a mold that does not fit.

You do not need to be someone you are not. Leave behind the thinking that life is an either or proposition. When we realize we can merge our duality back into one, healthy identity, then and only then can we take off the cape and let our true selves live and find the life we deserve.
