In today’s podcast episode, our very own host shares why she takes issue with the term ‘Mom Goals’!
Live Well Tip of the Week: Comparison is the enemy of alignment. You can not be fully present with your own life & experiences, if you’re always comparing your life to someone else’s.
Social media hashtags such as #Mom Goals, can cause unnecessary pressure, emotional pain, and mental health issues for some mothers. The term ‘Mom goals’, can cause us to strive for unrealistic goals.
Someone else’s mothering journey doesn’t have to be your journey.
We don’t know the truth behind closed doors or the reality of someone’s life behind a social media post. Social media only focuses on what can be seen publicly.
Understand the difference between inspiration and comparison.
Comparison interferes with our own intuition. It can cause you to question yourself and your own ability with raising your kids.
Avoid comparison. Try to stay on the side of inspiration. Be realistic with what works for your family and your personal parenting needs.
Remain in a place of humility even when receiving compliments on your parenting, so that you do not feel the need to keep up with a certain appearance of perfection. Afterall, parenting is not about meeting other people’s expectations!
Is there a particular hashtag that you see on social media that really gets under your skin? If so let us know! We may even use it as a topic for an upcoming episode!
