I think it’s time to turn off the noise.
As parents we can become sidetracked from our own mission of what we believe to be right or wrong when we listen to everyone else’s opinions too much. It is easy to worry that we aren’t doing enough, or we’re doing too much. It’s human nature to compare and contrast, but at the end of the day we need to decide what is best for our own children and then turn off the noise! I know what I’m talking about, because I used to be a sheep!
As a blogger we move in certain circles and whilst competition can be healthy, when you become preoccupied with what everyone else is doing and the way they’re doing it, you can lose sight of your goals as well. Who got what campaign. How did that person’s post compare with yours? What did so-and-so get paid to be part of that campaign. This mentality was extremely bad for my anxiety, so I took the decision to turn off the noise!
