Green eyed monster 

I don’t know if it is just me but I admit I do have a little bit of the green eyed monster when it comes to other mums. 

I am not even talking about mum’s I know it is mainly other mum’s I see when they are out and about or on social media. 

Instagram is a prime example of parents showing their perfect lives, impeccable homes, hair that looks like they have just stepped out of a salon and make up that would make even Kim Kardashian envious. And I know that people only show the good side of things on social media but it still makes my green eyed monster appear.

The same when I’m out and about. How do some mum’s find the time to have perfect hair and lose their baby weight within 5 seconds of giving birth? I have struggled losing my weight and only have my hair down unless it is a special occasion.

Now the real thing that makes me a green eyed monster is other working mum’s. I work pretty much full time in a pretty stressful job we have no family to rely on and are lucky that Chloe has a great nursery. But it is hard work. Yet how come other mum’s make it look so simple? 

But what I have come to realise is you never now the real story. Just because other people lives seem different the reality is sometimes very different.  Most people only let you see what they want you to.

  1. COmparison only steals the joy away from your life, hun. I know, we all have that green thing lurking around, but it’s really not helpful at times to look at other’s ‘success’. Find happy moments in your own life and look back on those! xoxo

  2. Exactly. Everyone’s lives are completely different, but more importantly, so are their perspectives. We all do it though, but it’s all dependant on what’s most important to us as people.

    Also, some people lose weight when pregnant (like me) so i didn’t have baby weight to lose! Another example of things not being what they may appear.. I’m also sure you’ll give other mums the green eyed monster too!

  3. I agree, thankfully we have a lot of honest mums and rave mums sharing their messy hair and no make up selfies, I love pictures with a messy house in the background. Makes me feel more normal. Great post x

  4. I feel like I could have written this! It’s so hard not to compare yourself to others isn’t it, especially when you see everyone’s Instagram posts. My kitchen currently has bits of twig all over it where the dog has brought it in and chewed it up – I bet loads of Instagram pics have the same kind of crazy stuff going on in the background! xx
