There are a lot of reasons that we believe this either subconsciously or consciously.
Society tells us, especially as women and mothers, that we need to be more with less. An honorable life as a mom somehow often means we’re doing it all.
Homeschooling, having a Pinterest perfect home and having six packs is the standard we see all around us.
Social media leads us to believe that filtered photos capturing a single moment should be our daily reality. This is unfair.
These societal expectations have driven our worth as mothers into the ground
We think it’s normal to be burnt out all the time. If we aren’t juggling every thing on our own we actually believe we aren’t doing enough.
Then when we see people living easy and good lives we think it can’t be real, or we turn green with envy.
Eventually we just believe that something is wrong with us because those ideals aren’t our every day life, so we don’t deserve to have an easy to live in clutter free home.
We must just need to try harder, or learn better life skills. Maybe we just need to catch a lucky break in another life, or something.
None of this is true. You deserve a clutter free home
You deserve to live an easy life. That doesn’t mean everything is perfect, but it should be normal to have free time. Running ourselves into the ground for the sake of winning some arbitrary standard is not a life.
Let’s normalize having free time.
Make it normal to have a home that is lived in, AND can be easily recovered from at the end of the day.
You are worthy of this, and you are an amazing mother and human.
You just have too much stuff to manage in your home. No one can organize, or keep clutter cleaned up. At least not without it consuming all of their time and energy and going slowly insane.
