|I have felt like this many times before due to my trouble with depression and anxiety. The thing about being a Mom is that there are soo many emotions associated with our children. I never could have predicted exactly how much I would love my kids or how hard parenting was and the guilt that comes with that etc. I think as Mama's we just can do our best, love our kids and try to come to terms with the fact that we are not perfect. I have a lot of ups and downs with my anxiety and it has seemed to flare up more since I have had kids I think because of the hormonal upset that comes with pregnancy, postpartum etc. and then with the stress of being tired and busy raising kids.
No one is perfect though. Whenever I feel like I am not worthy I look into my kids adoring eyes and see the enormous love they have for me...I am their rock and to them I am the best Mommy in the world. They make me want to be a better person, to be a good role model for them and to work through my issues so that I can be as happy and productive as possible. They make it all feel worth it.
