There isn’t a perfect mother, end of story. Moms who are struggling with their need for perfectionism and questioning how to be a good mother are one of the most frequently occurring topics that come up in therapy, according to a therapist with over 20 years of experience. I make it my therapeutic goal to teach women how to overcome their inclinations towards perfectionism and begin to accept their imperfections in order to help them let go of the idea of being a “perfect mother.” We need to set an example for our kids. Making mistakes through trial and error is a necessary part of growing up. A mother develops alongside her child as they mature, learning from her mistakes and failing along the way while also acquiring wisdom and experience. Taking care of your body, mind, emotions, and soul is one of the finest gifts you can give your family. So many women are accustomed to prioritising other tasks before their own. They get so preoccupied with constantly giving that they either fall ill, develop resentment, or lose sight of the importance of taking care of themselves. By taking the time to look after yourself, you build a healthier, stronger way of being that enables you to take better care of the children and other people in your life.
