As all parents know, some days are harder than others.
But one mom took to Reddit to admit that she “hates everything” about being a mom and even started teasing her daughter for the changes she made to her body during pregnancy.
The woman added that while she loves her little girl “so much it hurts,” she was unhappy with her life.
“I hate everything about being a parent; the constant need for no rest, no free time, 24/7 unpaid work on top of a full eight/nine hours of paid work,” she wrote.
“There is no freedom, only responsibility and worrying about everything. Not to mention the associated financial bottlenecks.”
She added that despite being the result of a planned pregnancy, her daughter felt pressured to become a mother.
“I let society and the people around me convince me that it was my duty to have a child and now I’m here with a lifetime commitment,” she continued.
“I really loved my life before and now my body, sanity, sleep and youth are just fading and it’s been replaced by constant crying, worrying and fear.”
Despite the fact that the woman obviously had a hard time expressing her feelings, her post quickly drew supportive comments from other moms.
“Just here to tell you that you’re not alone. I fight this feeling everyday until I just give in and admit that yes, being a parent sucks most of the time,” wrote another.
“Hang on, Mom, and reach out to friends, counselors, or whatever support systems you have.”
“I feel EXACTLY the same,” wrote another person. “My children are so loved by me, but I always feel like I made a mistake when I had them.
“A day will come when you will be your own person and I will no longer have to be a slave to your needs and desires.
“But until then, there are times when I’m almost ready to get in my car and drive as far away or yell until I’m hoarse because I’m so frustrated.”
