We need to stop LYING to each other & we can only do that when we stop lying to ourselves
When it comes to Parenting, we lie everyday. I’m not talking about the little white lie we tell the kids about the tooth fairy or the Easter Bunny. It’s the lie that tumbles from our lips to others, it goes a like this, “Having kids is so hard, I’m so tired & never have a minute to myself, but......... HERE IT COMES!! I wouldn’t change it for the World”
I wouldn’t change it for the World! Admit it, you wouldn’t change it because you CANT... cue gasps of horror from around the room.. the truth will set you free! The only way to change it is to walk out on your family, that’s NOT what this is about
Let’s be totally honest, whatever beautiful ideas or romantic sentiments we use to have kids in the first place, we have them to keep humanity going and repopulate the Earth! Yet the World is overpopulated & like it or not Humanity sucks.
Don’t agree with me about Humanity? Cast a critical eye over the World & our so called Advanced race. We have totally screwed up our planet, a quarter of what we spend on War per year would be enough to eradicate World Hunger but we would rather kill each other because of our different beliefs and what is written in action books!
Society from ancient to modern is fucking a lot of us over & we need to take control, not just think we are in control. So let’s have the balls to stand up and say it, I’ll even start - I am a Daddy, a Father, a Man & a Husband. Parenting does not come naturally to me. As an introvert by nature I crave alone time, yet being married with kids is the polar opposite of lifestyle of the one I belong in. Being a Father feels alien to me, I look at other Dads with their kids & family and can’t work out how they always seem to be enjoying their company.
It not me and I have to try really hard to do what seems so natural to others. consider Weekends, family days out and holidays? Not something I particularly enjoy, but that doesn’t make me a bad person. Being a Daddy, admittedly a very hands on one, feels alone to me. As a Father I have never felt fulfilled, complete or remotely at ease.
But that’s OK! It’s ok to admit it or at least it should be! Think about those perfect family units you see in the park, at the beach or visiting the theme park, having a picture perfect time, pictures so perfect they appear on social media?
NEWSFLASH - 80-85% of those idyllic images are staged, the one useable shot from countless attempts. Like the shot taken in the tidy corner of the kitchen or living room, while the rest of the place looks like a kid inhabited area should! It’s society again, pressuring us to portray this as the norm. It’s not & we won’t tell lies on this site.
