Even Joy-Anna Duggar admits that motherhood may be difficult at times, despite how lovely their Instagram postings may appear. Joy wrote an emotional article on Tuesday in which she talked about how she feels “inadequate” as a mom to her two kids and what she’s doing to change that. There’s some really good advise there!
Joy expressed her emotions and included a fresh image of her daughter Evelyn.
She stated in the article that a few months prior, she had been quite distressed over feeling like a “inadequate” mother to her children, Evy, 2, and Gideon, 4.
In her letter, she described how, “a few months ago, I was crying to Austin, feeling inadequate to be the mother of my two lovely children, and wanting to give them a joyful childhood and praying they will know how much Jesus loves them.”
Then, though, her spouse gave her some sound advice.
According to Joy, Austin requested her to record what he was about to say to her on the Notes app on her phone so that she could refer to it whenever she started to doubt herself.
“It’s not your responsibility to give your children the ideal existence. It is not your responsibility to always make them happy “Informing her. “It is your responsibility to be their mother in all circumstances, even happy and sad ones. turn up. Be stern. love a lot. Mother as well.”
It appears that he made the appropriate statement at the appropriate time.
She expressed gratitude as she concluded her post.
In her essay, she said, “I feel like every few weeks I have to stop, refocus, be purposeful in loving and parenting my kids and thank God for this BeAuTiFuL life he has given me with my husband and children.” “One of the most difficult but most gratifying jobs is becoming a mother.”
She is correct in that! When the pressure of parenting wears on us, it can be easy to forget how fortunate we are.
It appears that many other parents connected with Joy’s post.
Many mothers sent comments on the page stating that they could identify with how she was feeling.
“I’m fairly certain I needed to watch this! I appreciate you sharing and showing me that I am not a total failure as a mother “A supporter of her wrote.
Added another, “Being a parent is one of life’s most beautiful and challenging experiences, but it is so worthwhile. What a wonderful reminder!”
Joy appears to be a wonderful mother to her two kids.
Even though we can no longer watch them on Counting On, it is clear from all we have seen on Instagram that Gideon and Evy are both content and loved kids, which indicates Joy is doing her job.
It’s not easy being a mom to two kids under the age of five, so hopefully Joy can be a little more forgiving. She is doing wonderful!
