I'm just wondering if anyone else ever gets frustrated at other moms you know whether they're your friends, or in moms groups you're a part of, at your church, etc? I don't have any friends that I hang out with on a regular basis, I can't seem to find people that put as much into a friendship as I do, so I've sort of given up trying. I do have a lot of "friends" on facebook though and sometimes it just frustrates me how it seems like every other person on there is such a "better" mom than I am. I try to be as optimistic as possible and I do recognize that I am very blessed in my life, but there are also some things that downright SUCK and when I try to get it off my chest, it seems like everyone else just projects how perfect they are and nothing ever goes wrong for them. Plus, their kids are all smarter and they do so many more extra-curricular activities than my kids. I'm fine with what we do, and what we don't do, but sometimes I feel like it's rubbed in my face and I get so aggravated by it all. We're not all the same, God made us to be different and I understand that and it's fine. But when every time I turn around all these women are bragging about how wonderful their husbands, jobs, kids, finances, mini-vans, etc are...I'm ready to scream!
Please, someone tell me you know what I'm talking about and I'm not alone here.
