You Do Mothers’ Day Your Way

Standard

A note on Mothers’ Day:

Should you wish to spend it taking a break and relaxing, you should feel entitled to want that. Don’t let others make you feel bad for that.
Should you wish to spend it surrounded by your young children enjoying all their little quirks, you should feel entitled to want that. Don’t let others make you feel bad for that. 
Should you wish to be spoiled rotten for all the hard work you’ve done, you should feel entitled to want that.  Don’t let others make you feel bad for that. 
Should you wish for a hug and a kiss, you should feel entitled to want that. Don’t let others make you feel bad for that.
Should you wish to grieve either the loss of a loved one or the childhood an abusive mother stole from you, then you should feel entitled to do that. Don’t let others make you feel bad for that.

Should you wish to put your children at risk with negligence or abuse, don’t do that.

Should you wish to destroy another mother’s Mothers’ Day by making them serve and bow down to you when you’ve had decades of getting to be the mother when their journey into motherhood is just beginning, don’t do that. 

If your MIL or other always destroyed your Mothers’ Day by making you stressed and jump through hoops, don’t continue the cycle. Stop the tension and abuse now.

Should you wish to smugly state what you want and how it’s actually better than what others want and that you can’t possibly understand why they want what they do…. SHUT UP. Just don’t. How other people live their life is none of your fucking business. Unless it is literally child abuse keep your smug shit to yourself. Make a police report if it’s an issue not a FB post.
Love and kisses
