Work at Home Moms Need Socializing Too Comments Off on Work at Home Moms Need Socializing Too
Being a busy work at home mom, it can become so easy to fall into the guilt trap where you start to neglect yourself. Many home office moms feel guilty if they take time for themselves and end up taking care of everyone else around them and pushing their own needs aside. This ultimately will leave you feeling burnt out, stressed out, truly unhappy and sometimes regretful. During the journey of womanhood, it is easy to lose ourselves along the way and inadvertently cut off or not seek out the support of other work at home moms.
This has been such a busy month for me as I have had few lunch gathering with few girl friends. It is nice to gather with friends and share parenting stories apart from discussing work issues. We talk about almost anything, from how to cook the best tiramisu to what retail stores do with barcode scanners. We even gathered at a friend’s house to make some traditional favourite dishes.
It is necessary that you give yourself time to unwind, socialize and bond with others, especially other home office moms. This allows you to truly rediscover yourself and be encouraged to do much more for yourself and others. When you socialize with other moms, you can gain support, ideas and tips to help you with deal with certain parenting and relationship concerns from others who feel just like you do or have dealt with the same issues.
