6 Itty Bitty Sentences That Remind Me To Talk A Little Nicer To Myself With My Inner Monologue

You know those days where everything seems to crumble before you?  Where you feel like you are trying your very best, but your best just isn’t good enough?  Where your child tries to comfort you because he walked in on you trying to hide your tears?  Where you can easily turn people’s comments into things they didn’t mean?  When you finally feel like screaming, “I GIVE!” and hope an answer falls in your lap?

Sometimes the front I put up seems to fall apart and I am unsure how to move forward.  Sometimes I just want to pack my family in the car and drive far away.  Sometimes I wonder how I ended up where I am, and why I feel constantly tested.  Sometimes I wish my life seemed as easy as other people’s.

  1. This happens more often than I want to admit.

  2. Yes! it seems like you’ve got the right quotes to help lift you up. I would add, you are wonderful! Kind, sweet, and fun! It’s normal and 100% okay to have days/moments/etc of doubt and fear. Keep up the good work!

  3. I completely and totally hear you with this post and feel the same way. I struggled more-so with these feelings and the overwhelming nature of single parenting early-on. Now, going on 7 years as a single mom, and by single, I mean truly single-no partner, no boyfriend, no family close by, etc, I find myself with more calm, a stronger ability to let go of what I cannot control and be gentle with what I can, and I let a little less bother me than I used to. I think this is the blessing of age and time, overall, but I will share a couple of very concrete choices that have helped me especially during that last year….First, simplifying my life into necessities mixed with a smaller blend of “wants”-in other words, my life consists of being a mom first, being an employee second, and riding horses, third (as a “want”). I don’t cram everything else I possibly can into my life-and that includes letting dating go by the wayside-much less stress! Also, I had to stop comparing my world to anyone else’s world. I used to feel bad about being alone, wishing I had more for Maycee both in family and in material things. Once I stopped doing this I felt more peace, and life has seemed somewhat easier.

      Thanks for the advice! It is comforting to know I am not the only one dealing with this. My main struggle is financial, and I really believe the only solution is to find a job that pays more. Unfortunately, I am in a small city with little job opportunities.

      • I’m in the same boat. Every single month is paycheck to the end of the squeezed next paycheck, and when I try to come up with ways to increase income without leaving my dear job I love (like renting out my master bedroom-BIG MISTAKE), this is when “extra” things hit that take away anything I’ve set aside. After years of this, I’ve learned to roll with the punches (somewhat) and just keep doing my best to be frugal with my dollars. Hang in there!

          Too funny, I was actually thinking about renting out my spare room! Might reconsider now!
