It takes a lot for a mom to break down entirely. When you look at the facts and statistics, such a large amount of women and moms, in particular, are suffering from some sort of mental health illness. If they’re not suffering from an illness, they’re suffering with some kind of mental battle that they’re finding it hard to resolve. It’s true when they say that there’s no better thing than being able to be a mom. But if being a mom comes at the right time, or if you’re a mom while a lot of other things are going on in your life, then it can be hard to manage. Everything can just get on top of you, and before you know it you’ll be stressed beyond belief. There’s also the common issue of single moms. It’s nice to have a partner as a reliable support system, but often the father isn’t present anymore. So for those moms, dealing with issues becomes a lot harder. So, we’re going to discuss some of the things that might lead up to a breakdown, how to manage it, and how to come out on top!
What Can Cause It
Many things can lead up to a breakdown in anyone’s life. All that has to happen is for a routine to be thrown out for a long amount of time, and a breakdown can happen. But when it comes to being a mom, there are a specific set of problems that we think pop up, such as financial problems and knowing you have to support another human still. There’s relationship problems that can end really badly, for some reason it’s always worse when a child is involved. There’s the isolation that can leave moms only being around their children, creating an absolute nightmare. It can lead to us turning to all sorts of things to try and cope. A really common coping method is turning to alcohol. Just one glass a night can turn to two once the kids have gone to bed. Before you know it, it’s an every night thing that you rely on for comfort.
How To Manage It
There are plenty of ways that we should be dealing with stress in our lives. The first is to focus on the problems that it is creating. So a common example was turning to alcohol, and it could quickly become a big problem. Help4Addiction is just one of the organisations supporting those who have found they can’t cope without alcohol, and all it takes is for you to reach out if you feel like you’re suffering. If this isn’t something you’ve turned to yet, you need to look to build a support system around you. Find like-minded friends by going to classes at the gym, or toddler and mom classes. Or simply turn to family and old friends and tell them you’re struggling!
How To Come Out On Top
We truly believe that having a few good people around you is the best way for you to come out on top. The more people you have that are guiding and supporting you. The more you’re going to be able to get out of life.
