How to Become a MORE Anxious Mother!

Want to become riddled with anxiety… buuuuut just not sure how?

Sure you do! Why else would you have stayed up worrying all night last night?

Listen, we all struggle with worries and anxieties in parenting. But sometimes in order to heal anxieties, to work THROUGH anxieties, we need to laugh and, yes, even PLAY with our anxieties!

My children play dress-up to work through their fears and anxieties over monsters. So, I decided to do the same….just on YouTube.

Introducing my Alter Ego with “Tips on Becoming a MORE Anxious Mother”

  1. Worry about things that are completely out of your control.
    Natural disasters, hurricanes, tornadoes, tsunamis, political disasters, terror attacks, plane crashes, or just strange objects falling out of the sky. These are all fair game in the name of anxiety and fear. The more statistically improbable, the better!
  2. Worry about things that other people are doing that you’re not, or that other children are doing that your children are not.
    The fastest way to do this? Open any social media app and begin unfavorably comparing. The Johnson’s are taking a family vacation to Hawaii, and you’re not? The Smith’s are doing family dinner around the table and you’re not? Scrolling through Instagram will make you feel like you are not measuring up, and that’s sure to cause anxiety!
  3. Worry about things that you ARE doing that other people aren’t.
    Like feeding your children cereal for dinner. Binging on chocolate and Netflix. Hiding in the pantry from your kids. You are the ONLY one who does those things. No one else!
  4. Worry about things that haven’t happened yet and might never happen.
    “Will my kids be popular in high school?” “Who’s he going to be friends with in high school?” “I hope the economy doesn’t change by that time.” “I hope it’s a good crowd.” Worrying about things in the future that may or may not happen, and wondering how they will happen, and feeling really nervous about that can really add to an overall sense of anxiety in the moment.
  5. Worrying about things that have already happened, in particular, choices that you have already made. 
    “I breastfed for way too long.” “I didn’t breastfeed for long enough.” “Should I have breastfed?” You see how this goes. This area is a goldmine for anxiety, since there are a million endless choices to be made in any given moment, so there is an unlimited amount of anxiety to be had over these decisions.
  6. Worry in general, vague terms. 
    Worrying in broad strokes, with things like, “Am I a good mother?” “Are we okay?” “Are my children measuring up?” makes you feel on edge and like there’s something wrong, which there is. This will lead you to feel anxious all of the time. YEAH!
  7.  Constantly guess and assume that other people are judging you unfavorably, and worry about what they think of you.
    The BIG KAHUNA of anxieties, right? You should always be guessing what people are saying about you behind your back, whispering about your child while you are at the supermarket, and what everyone is thinking about YOU all of the time.  Here’s the thing: All of the people that you meet in your life are only thinking about you. They have no lives of their own, and they have no mistakes or shame of their own. They’re really just lingering and focusing on your shame, and they just want to spend their whole life talking and obsessing about how terrible you are.

Sound ridiculous? Yet how many of us worry like this, endlessly wondering who’s judging us, what other choices we could have made, or what the future may (or may not) hold.

Worry and anxiety in parenting can be consuming and unproductive. But sometimes, we don’t even know were how much anxiety fills out lives until we see it played out in front of us, on a stage or in a video like in this one!

Watch the video to see how absurd anxieties can sometimes be. Want to help combat anxiety in parenthood?  Read about present, mindful living  or self talk and follow me on Facebook for more anxiety talk (AND peaceful parenting talk too!).

Now look, we’re all tired of the over-inflated results that course creators are flaunting on the interwebs. We’re all suspicious of online courses actually delivering on all their bloated promises. So if you think, “Bah, just another expensive course I don’t need” - I feel you, I do. I take the same wary approach when buying new programs. ⁣

But that’s why I want to share real human beings from all walks of life who have actually been through this course and received meaningful and priceless renewals in their relationships. ⁣

Like Chelsea, who remarked: “When I joined Parent in Love, I was ready to give up on my marriage. Today, my marriage has had a complete overhaul! It's practically a different marriage altogether.”⁣

Or Tanya, who reported: "This course has ABSOLUTELY TRANSFORMED our marriage, our family life, and my own personal growth journey! We still fight, but the fights are fewer and we tend to make up quicker and in front of the kids now!"⁣

And here's what Jonna said: "I have tools that give me hope and I know how to start resolving our conflicts. I have started to notice how my own shift of thoughts changes the whole atmosphere in our home, not only between me and my hubby but with the kids also."⁣

Check out my IGTV for more amazing success stories.⁣

Ever find yourself waiting for your partner to change? Sometimes, it feels easier alone. ⁣

As much as you want and need the support - I know sometimes it can just feel easier to run your home on your own. ⁣

No one criticizing. ⁣
No one judging. ⁣
No one commenting. ⁣
No one watching. ⁣
No one adding to your to-do list with their needs.⁣
No one irritating you.⁣

Ah. Bliss. ⁣

But did you ever have these thoughts only to then think: "Yikes! That's not really what I want, is it? What's wrong with me? What's wrong with us!?"⁣

And what has waiting for your partner to change gotten you so far? ⁣

Stop waiting... ⁣

You deserve to have a happy marriage, and your kids deserve to have happy parents. ⁣

And don't wait on your partner, because the Parent In Love program is DESIGNED to be done alone - so that YOU can focus on what YOU can change: yourself.⁣

Your partner will necessarily be affected by the changes you make - because that's how relationships work, we're intertwined like that. ⁣

So TAKE A BREAK trying to change your partner right now, and finally, start to see some real transformation. ⁣

Psst... Your partner doesn't even have to KNOW you're doing the program - not that I'm suggesting you hide this from them, especially if you two are used to discussing financial investments you make - but I DO want you to know that many members have gone through Parent In Love WITHOUT letting their partners know about it. ⁣

And what happened? ⁣

Well, typically their partner would suddenly begin to NOTICE a profound (wonderful!) shift in their relationship and wonder "what's going on?!" ⁣

If you really want to take this program but you're struggling to work through their concerns, especially about the $ investment, I've provided scripts to help you have those important conversations with confidence. ⁣
