Am I a Sh*t Parent?

Exploring The Three Principles with Sarie Taylor

Things I used to think, feel and do before I saw what I see now!

I used to believe that in order to be a great mum, I had to constantly engage with my children, singing nursery rhymes with my 1-year-old and having deep, meaningful conversations with my teenager.

I thought I had to do all the right things for all the people in my family.

However, I now realise that this belief is not true. It's only a part of what it means to be a good parent.

Being a good mum also means acknowledging that I am human.

It means allowing myself to feel upset and cry on certain days.
It means recognising that I sometimes need space and time alone.
It means understanding that I can crave both time away from my kids and time spent with them.

Putting myself first in terms of my well-being may sound selfish, but it indirectly benefits my children and is a way of putting THEM first for me.

If I don't take care of myself and prioritise my own well-being, I won't have the capacity or energy to be everything my kids need from me.

I need space to recharge. I need breaks to rejuvenate.

There are times when I feel overwhelmed by the demands of motherhood. And that's okay. It's normal to have weeks where I feel incredibly grateful, happy, and content, but also experience moments of crying, feeling down, and longing for a pause in life to rest and recharge.

All of these emotions and experiences are valid.

They are all part of what makes me a phenomenal parent, regardless of my children's ages.

It's important to remember that taking care of ourselves is not a selfish act, but rather an essential one in order to be the best we can be for those who need us.

Whether you're a parent, carer or someone who looks after someone else in one way or another, here is your reminder that you, too, are phenomenal.

Prioritise yourself and your well-being. It's not selfish, it's necessary.

I have a live session called 'All About Prioritising Yourself' coming up on 2nd August 2023 - would you like to join me?

Are we overcomplicating mental health? 

The continuous spiral of talking about mental illness and neglecting to discuss mental health that’s within us all! 

Finding herself in a mental hospital for a month aged 22, her worst fears of going crazy had come true! Sarie truly believed she was broken for many years, and now sees that this was in part due to massively over complicating what it meant be a human being. After a long period of exploring and training as a psychotherapist, still burning out every 18 months for another ten years, Sarie finally found the answer, and now shares the surprising simplicity of it all to help others get the same relief. 

Sarie has trained as a transactional analysis psychotherapist, as well as working and training in many other therapeutic disciplines, such as NLP, CBT, DBT and hypnotherapy. Sarie is also an author, celebrity coach and therapist, working with thousands of people a year, of all ages, all over the world. Her main aim is to help them really see the simplicity and beauty behind human nature, getting out of their heads and into their lives, being able to see that the inside out nature of life really is a gift. This removes limitations and stories they may hold about themselves, and as a result finding an ease and contentment in life they often never knew was possible.
