I was talking to a mom a couple of weeks ago and she was talking about not really knowing where to go anymore. She was overwhelmed and exhausted. She even said that there were many times a week she wondered if she was the right person to raise her daughter. She said no matter what she did - she didn't feel like anything was changing.
We continued to talk about how long the process of healing is and that there are stages of healing, but many times they are not only hard to see or feel but that we don't even know what they are. The reality is if we don't know what those stages are, we can't really help our child through them. Always having to just play defense is exhausting! Constantly having to react to the unknown without any plan, without tools or techniques that work towards changing hard stuff, and all the while feeling like you are alone in it all is EXHAUSTING!
Here's the thing...I told her and I want to tell you too, if you are only playing defense it's time to make a change! There IS a different option! Working from an offensive standpoint makes you so much more powerful. Having a plan. Seeing things from a different direction. Being in front of the hard stuff, molding it into something doable rather than being behind it cleaning up the emotional mess it leaves. Feeling like you can breathe - like you are a good parent- like you have a life!
Yes, It is possible, even in the midst of it all.
You know I have been there. I get it oh so well. Let's do this together - I know I can help. And I know the best way to help. The mom I talked to a few weeks ago joined my Inner Circle so we could get together an offensive plan full of tools and techniques that work, provide her with some much needed relief and a whole group of people that "get it" to cheer her on. She now talks about feeling more confident as MOM to her struggling child than ever before.
Do you want that for you and for your whole family? The reality is that our children are not going to totally heal in 3 weeks...that's not why she feels so much better. She feels better because she has a plan, she has people that "get it" behind her, she knows she is not alone because she can ask for support any day of the week and someone will be there. Inner Circle was designed to help me support other families in the absolute best way I could - being available consistently and often, passing on a new effective way of parenting so you don't have to struggle like we did, and making sure that no one feels alone! If you are exhausted from playing defense, it is time to make a CHANGE. Join Inner Circle and feel the difference!
