Essential guide to the things that limit the working mom’s happiness

How long have you been working and taking on the responsibilities of a mother as well? I am sure no one can understand the struggle and unfair judgment of society makes it impossible for working mothers to stay happy. Why the society thinks that working moms don’t love their kids as much as the moms who are not working. 

We can quickly notice that many working moms work outside and inside the home. Of course, achieving the ideal work-life balance requires that all sides of life are formed equally and that a person can divide the time correctly, but is this realistic?

Isn’t it true that doing so will provide happiness at home and work? After a long day at work, few things seem more important for most working mothers than spending time with their children. 

Let’s look at some things that play a significant role in limiting working moms’ happiness.

Burnout:

Burnout is not a catchy phrase but an actual medical disease declared by WHO and is defined as “chronic job stress that has not been properly handled.”. It is a massive problem for working women. 

Great Place to Work and health-care start-up Maven concluded that it’s challenging to balance child-care problems with employment obligations based on a survey of 440,000 working parents, including 226,000 mothers. 

There were 35 million working mothers on average in the United States at the end of 2019, and roughly 9.8 million working mothers in the United States are suffering from workplace burnout.

This is especially true for working mothers attempting to balance job and family life.

 

 

“I think every working mom probably feels the same thing. You go through big chunks of time where you’re just thinking, ‘This is impossible—oh, this is impossible.’ And then you just keep going and keep going, and you sort of do the impossible.” – Tina Fey

Working Mom Guilt:

Every working mother has to deal with the guilt of neglecting her child for the sake of her career at some point. She might play the role of supermom, taking care of her child in every way while also putting in additional effort in her profession. But one misstep or disaster in her parenting responsibilities leaves her feeling guilty.

She forgets that such failures or blunders can occur in any mother, whether she is a stay-at-home or a working mother. The mother must break free from her guilt and accept the situation.

She must stop blaming herself when the child is harmed or sick or fails academically. She should keep in mind that children with full-time mothers suffer similar issues.

Work-Life Conflict:

Working full-time as a mother can be both tedious and demanding. Aside from their professional obligations, they must also manage their household and care for their child. This has a significant impact on their work-life balance and their emotional and mental health. If female employees balance job and family responsibilities, they will experience a loss of resources and may also be stressed, resulting in poor mental health.

Questionable priorities:

There is a significant difference in how we view working men and women. While males have traditionally worked in the public sector, their sense of family obligation is confined to that of a breadwinner instead of women’s position as housekeepers.

As a result, whenever women enter the workforce, their devotion to their families is sometimes questioned, and their priorities must be established immediately.

Conclusion:

Every woman dreams of a stable profession and financial freedom. But, with marriage and the birth of a child, years of hard work and planning are cut short. 

I recall how upset a mother was the first time she left her child at a daycare center. But Hats off to the working mothers who managed to conquer the challenging periods with a bit of understanding, family support, and planning and became successful!
