Selfish

Monday, May 12, 2008

I must be the most selfish self involved person ever. I am ashamed of myself and my behavior.
To my neighbor who I snapped at my husband in front of, I am sorry.
To my husband whom I snapped at this morning, I am sorry.
To my children to whom I have been irritable and crabby, I am sorry.
To my friends to whom I have not been a good friend, I am sorry.

I have been so wrapped up in myself and my issues, I apologize, please forgive me.

We all have moments Elizabeth, but you are NOT selfish. You are a giving mom who continually put her kids and husband and others ahead of yourself. You are stressed and anxious and life seems topsy-turvy right now. But don't be too hard on yourself. In fact, give yourself MORE grace to deal with what you have on your plate (which is a lot!). You are a good mom and a good friend.

I agree with Farrah, you have so much grace as a mom. If i had 3 kids under the age of, what?, 4? I think I'd honestly be a puddle of tears, anger, regret and irritation. I dont think I would be able to function. I am continually amazed at how well you are able to handle your life with 3 kids, and not just handle it, but do things as well-go out and do things and do things around the house.

We ALL have selfish moments, we ALL have things we are not proud of. Take comfort in the fact that even though you are feeling down about yourself, other moms all over the world, even ones you know, are feeling bad as well and we all have things that are ugly about us that we want to work out. We just don't have the sight to see it in others...Hang in there...
