Today’s society is full of how to be’s and how not to be’s. Especially when it comes to being a mom. But guess what? I don’t give a damn about your opinion.
When I first had my daughter, everyone was ecstatic and so extremely supportive. But as she got older, that excitement died down and that support turned into criticism. Suddenly instead of hearing, “You’re doing a great job, Mom!” I heard, “Wow, you’re a mom now.. You’re really getting that car?” “Don’t you think you should be finding a career? Finding a good man & settling down?” No. No I don’t.
The thing is, my daughter’s wellbeing has and always will be looked afterward. I don’t need a great huge house, with a rich husband and another child on the way because, “She needs siblings!” in order to be a good mom. I’m done listening to people express their opinions so forwardly, even after I decline their suggestions. I am her mom. I know what’s good for her. I know what she needs. Tell me, were you there during her first days on this world? Better yet, did you carry her in your womb? Learn what makes her move, what food she likes, etc.? NO.
Stop going amuck with your assumption and judgements. Stop preaching. I appreciate the advice, finger pointing and extremely judgmental criticism, however my daughter and I will be fine with or without your concern. Don’t tell me how to be a mother, ESPECIALLY if you aren’t a parent yourself.
Kindly take your opinions and shove them where the sun don’t shine.
The Fed Up Mom.
