I chose my resolution poorly this month. Not complaining doesn’t make me any happier. In fact, it has made me realize that 1) I’m not the Debbie Downer kind of complainer (or at least I hope not…) 2) my “complaints” are necessary for my expression, the way I process things 3) stuffing my complaints away only makes me feel worse. My intention this month was to stop complaining about all the hardships of parenting and to get my role as a mother into perspective (i.e. take the tantrums in stride, be present and model calming down). This might still be hard for me to do but honestly, by letting go of this month’s resolution, I think I’ve learned a lot about myself.
The irony is not lost on me here: complaining about not complaining!
