Parenting Survival Rule #2- Facebook is NOT Real!
Rule #2: FaceBook is NOT real!
We have heard the phrase “Keeping up with the Joneses” for years as small talk about comparison. If there is anything I want you to take away from this section is that comparison is a trap! There are many ways that we all get caught in feeling inferior as a parent, even just as an adult, but one thing remains true in that we are all struggling to make it day by day. Whether you are catching up with a buddy on the golf course, chatting to a friend in the grocery store, or watching a child emerge from carline with the biggest and fanciest darn science report that was ever created, the common factor is that these brief interactions are not the full picture. We all struggle! I am pretty sure if there were a bus (the struggle bus, of course) I’d personally be driving it. But when we truly analyze our roles in life, whether, wife, husband, mother, father, etc., we cannot do this in comparison to anyone else. The single greatest source of joy comes from knowing in our heart that we are connected to our loved ones. No expensive purse, new truck, or name brand clothes makes anyone feel safe and loved. Those are just lagniappe: a little something extra. So, today, I want you to take stock in what is most important to you. If you were to write a Mission statement for yourself, what would it say? Live from that place. Embrace the way you and your family are different, yet stay connected!
