At the time of writing this post, It’s CORONA TIME. We’re all social isolating and spending all our time at home.Personally I’ve been diving into podcasts, books and doing some major reflecting (surprise, surprise) As isolating as it feels to be stuck at home indefinitely, there is a silver lining here.
Personally, I know I asked for this.
I wished for more downtime, for less responsibility, for more time to read, journal and spend time with family.
WELL… that’s what we’ve got!
So many stepmoms who follow this page are struggling in one way or another. Whether it be finding your place in your family, dealing with the ex, having an ours baby or coping with all the extra stressors – being a stepmom is no easy feat.
The problems is, most stepmoms don’t realize that they aren’t alone in how they feel. Why? Because no one talks about it.
While moms are encouraged to keep it real, stepmoms are supposed to keep their mouths shut – because we knew what we were getting into when we arrived a man with kids an and ex. (for the record, I was being sarcastic)
To be clear:
You’re not alone
Being a stepmom IS hard
It’s NORMAL to feel like everything is outside of your control
Everything IS more complicated
