It's hard to be a mother today. There is the pressure to be a perfect mother, prefect women as well as perfect working woman. To be there for your children, for your partner, to have successfull job, to have a tidy house, to do sports, to look good etc. These kinds of outer expectations become the inner expectations, which trigger our inner critic. And our true self tries to hide, feeling shame and not good enough.
When we feel stressed and not good enough, one typical reaction is - we try to do more! We try harder. We become more active, try to manage more things from the to-do-list. We chase the feeling of satisfaction when we achieve what we wanted (and yes, our brains can give us that rewarding feeling by producing dopamine after each achievment). By doing more, we might feel satisfied for a while, but it will not last long until we again start feeling not good enough, which usually follows by running after another "dopamine dose" in our brain. This kind of behaviour does not bring real contentment, because by doing it we are all the time rejecting a part of us - a more real part of us, that needs to be nurtured in a different way.
Compassion focused therapy by Paul Gilbert teaches about three circuits in our brain:
Often we as mothers run between (1) and (2), feeling often even more exhausted and unsatisfied. It is no wonder we are acting this way, cause the general life style nowadays is just the same. But there is no healing without the part (3). This is also the part where compassion and self-compassion make impact on our wellbeing. And as the word itself says - it is a well-BEING. This state is more about Beingness than about doing.
