In this deeply personal episode, I talk about my journey through motherhood. I confront the shadows of self-judgment and comparison that haunt so many of us moms.
The constant battle against the nagging feeling that I'm not doing enough, the relentless comparisons with other moms who seem to have it all together—it's a cycle that's as exhausting as it is unending.
And then, there's the overthinking, the fear that maybe I'm not a good enough parent.
But here's the truth I've learned: Embracing my imperfections and letting go of these self-imposed limitations is key.
It's not about being the perfect mom; it's about being the best mom I can be for my kids at any given time.
And in this video, I share how I'm learning to do just that.
