On Failing As A Mother

I’m a failure as a mother.

Lately, these words run through my head almost daily.

I try to write my way out of it. Around it. Through it.

Hence my essay published today on Mamalode.

“Chaos is part of our home ground. Instead of looking for something higher or purer, work with it just as it is.” – Pema Chodron

  1. Just read On Failing as a Mother. A beautifully written piece with words that perfectly capture how I feel on a daily basis… “tortured by the paradox of our being.” YES! Thank you.
