Her Renewed Strength Podcast | Episode 62
“I love my kids, but they give me anxiety!”
Sister, have you ever said or heard those words? Do you feel guilty that the kids you have waited for so long and who you love so much trigger your anxiety? Do you wish you could parent without anxiety?
I get it! Motherhood is challenging. But here’s the truth: your kids are not the ones giving you anxiety. It is you. You are doing it to yourself!
In this episode, I dive into why you are anxious and how your kids are not to blame. You might disagree with me, but that’s okay. If you agree, I hope this episode minister to you and shifts your focus.
Why you’ve got to check out today’s episode:
Embrace the reality that you are not in control of others, including your kids, so you can better focus on your responses and reactions.
Understand why your kids aren’t what triggers your anxiety, so you won’t react harshly to them.
Learn to accept your kids’ mess, noise, and unpredictability as something that will pass so you can see the beauty of the bigger picture.
“No wisdom, no understanding, and no counsel will prevail against the Lord. A horse is prepared for the day of battle, but victory comes from the Lord.” – Proverbs 21:30-31
