You can call me Dr. Suzi if you’d like because I have my PhD in I/O Psychology, but most people don’t actually know that about me. Most people just know me as Miranda and Alexander’s mom.
Occupationally speaking, I am currently in a hybrid role. I am basically doing the job of 3 people, but I just get paid in hugs because…I’m a Stay-At-Home-Mom (SAHM).
I made a mistake a long time ago, one that I believe is common for many people: I fell in love.
Although falling in love is great in concept, when you fall in love, that suggests a dependency on the other person. Your love for that person is so strong that it makes you fall to the ground. You need that person to hold you up and bolster you.
Moms need to put their oxygen mask on before assisting others. If we don’t take care of ourselves, we can’t possibly be of service to our children, family, and friends. I have forgotten this important piece of advice countless times and it has left me depressed and unable to carry out my daily functions with any enthusiasm. Sometimes it’s hard to be there 100%. It is hard to be the Pinterest perfect mom.
Ignorance is sticking your head in the sand and pretending like the world isn’t moving around you. When you are ignorant, you are living in fantasy, denying truth, and generally not acknowledging that which is real.
Ignorance allows people to be cold, callous, and devoid of feeling.
We as people are starved, depraved of empathy these days. There is a desperate need for connection in this world. We need casual conversation and deep conversation. It is a desert out there. Honestly, the loneliness epidemic has now become a loneliness pandemic that is rivaling Covid. The loneliness pandemic is leading to drug abuse, alcoholism, depression, and thoughts of suicide.
Please email me with any questions or comments you may have. I would love to hear from you! I may not have all the answers, but I’ll try to my best to help.
