Do you ever wonder "why do i even bother?"

seriously there are days when i wonder why i even bother getting out of bed, or being nice to people, or being a "responsible adult"... I'm sick and tired of paying bills and being broke, i'm tired of disciplining the kids and always being the bad guy, i'm tired of cleaning and cleaning and cooking and laundry and driving and all my 10,000 other "jobs" without so much as a 'thank-you' in payment. I'm just tired of my life damnit...

  • did i write this
    no, i would have complained about the man in my life

    i am in boat right next to you

    i will thank you...thank you for all you do for everyone else, while ignoring your needs, or at least putting them last on the list, your job is a thankless one, but one that should be appreciated the most

    thank you mom for doing all you do!

  • sorry you feel that way! You should probably talk with you SO/DH, and figure this out! Honestly I love being a SAHM, I like cleaning, and I love my hubby he is my best friend,adn if you feel this way, you need to look for a way to fix it! Good luck! Oh and I do have alot going on too, so noone needs to assume that I have it easy! I have 4 kids, 1 on the way, I am a military wife, and PTA mom, I belong to 3 spouses groups, and I volunteer! But in the end I am satisfied! Good luck!
