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. So this mom came up with a way to remind us to be kind to ourselves.
Mom blogger Kristina Kuzmic, aka the Truth Bomb Mom, 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 lately she realized how hard we are on ourselves. The things we say to ourselves are insults we wouldn't say to our friends in our lives depended on it. 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. As they sat down on they reveal all of the heartbreaking things they say to themselves. Whether it was about their appearance, or being a bad mom, or even not keeping the house clean these women were so bravely honest. And sadly some of these are things we've probably all thought about ourselves at one time or another.
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. And that was when they realized what they had been doing all along and the tears started to flow.
I never would have thought about it like this, but when you see it pointed out it is truly eye-opening. Thank you Kristina for sharing this message with the world. We all need to learn to be kind to ourselves and love ourselves the way we love others!
