The Struggle of Motherhood: Breaking the Cycle of Desperation

Down to the bone, to the deepest part of my soul, lies the love I have for my children. Every day of my life is imperfectly offered to them, but the little years are hard and oftentimes so lonely. It’s like there’s a secret that we fear sharing – just how life-altering motherhood is, especially when you don’t have training or support.

Let me pull back the curtain on the idea that just because you love and are thankful to be a mother, parenting will come easily or naturally. The lifetime commitment that is motherhood will, many days, stretch you beyond what you think you can handle. And we, as moms, don’t need another instruction manual – we need physical help.

If you are a mom of little ones and you don’t have much help, I know you’re struggling to breathe. Your days morph into your nights, and mornings come way too quickly. You’re exhausted and would give just about anything for a break, a soul-filling, relaxing, quiet break. I know what that’s like, I get it, I have been there.

But what if we didn’t have to do motherhood alone? What if older women were willing to invest in the lives of younger women? What if we realized that younger moms, older moms, and women in general need each other? What if it were possible that there could be no more desperate moms?
