Reminder For Moms To Be Kind To Themselves

Reminder For Moms To Be Kind To Themselves

Being a mom is the toughest job in the world. And all of us have a tendency to beat ourselves up about the littlest things from time to time. So this mom came up with a way to remind us to be kind to ourselves. Mom blogger Kristina Kuzmic is known for sharing messages that are so honest sometimes it feels like she is talking specifically to you. And when she was talking to some of her fellow female friends recently she realized how hard we are on ourselves.


The things we say to ourselves are insults we would never say to our friends. We’d never even consider being that hateful to the people we love, and yet we are frequently that hateful to ourselves. This broke Kristina’s heart and she knew she needed to do something about it. So she asked her girlfriends to come over for a conversation. Whether it was about their appearance, or being a bad mom, or even not keeping the house clean these women were so bravely honest.

Then Kristina handed them a photo of themselves as a little girl and asked the women to tell that little girl all those hateful things. Of course, none of them could bring themselves to insult those sweet little faces. I never would have thought about it like this, but when you see it pointed out it is truly eye-opening. We all need to learn to be kind to ourselves and love ourselves the way we love others!
