The truth about self-doubt.

Self-Doubt IS Normal

I talk to a lot of parents who think self-doubt is a problem.

But self-doubt isn’t a problem.

It’s simply a feeling we have.

Most parents experience self-doubt.

So if you’re doubting yourself right now, you’re in good company.

Here are some thoughts that trigger it…

“I don’t know if I can do this.”

“I’m just not as good as her.”

“I just yelled at the kids again. I’m such a loser.”

“I am never going to be able to stop overreacting.”

“I did it again…I just can’t get this right.”

Self-doubt is just a feeling.

It can feel terrible.

But it’s just a feeling.

A feeling created by thoughts like the ones above.

Nothing more than that.

You can be full of self-doubt and still rock it as a mom.

You can “mess up.”

And instead of giving yourself a bunch of judgment.

Give yourself a bunch of grace.


Feel your emotions.

Validate yourself.

And when you’re ready let it go and move on.

Quit thinking you shouldn’t be feeling self-doubt.

Start thinking “It’s not a problem to feel self-doubt.”

Start thinking “what matters is my reaction to feeling self-doubt.”
