If we lined up ten stay-at-home moms, four would admit to struggling with motherhood. It’s true! You could be struggling to keep up with the housework or to meet the needs of everyone that depend on you every day. Maybe you are struggling because your own needs go unmet since you never have enough energy for yourself. Whatever it is you’re struggling with, I promise you aren’t alone. I bet you’ve chatted to your mom friends recently, and they’ve been in solidarity with you.
But, why don’t we tell our husbands?

Babe, we need to talk about something that’s been weighing on me for a long time. I work hard to make sure the house is clean, the kids are taken care of, errands are finished, and everyone is generally happy. It’s exhausting me. I am invisible and I’m not sure I can keep up doing everything for everyone. I’m struggling and I need your help.
