I’ve noticed that social media has done something damaging to the modern homemaker: It has frazzled her.
It has made her think that being a homemaker is not enough. That if you’re not working outside the home, you better be hustling to make your house perfect and make yourself a brand online!
I know, I’m a homemaker myself 🙂 And…
Being a homemaker is enough.
It really is 💖 You’re the special glue that holds the family together. As a homemaker, you decorate, mend, listen.
You cook, clean, and wash… and you’re the magic that makes a house feel like a home. (You’re also the magic that makes sure your husband eats more than just pizza, but that’s besides the point 😁)
Is it not warmer and are there not more smiles when you’re around? 🥰
Enter Social Media
And then here comes social media, stomping its feet and demanding that your house look bigger! Better! Cleaner! Do you shop at Dollar Tree? Pfffftt! It’s nothing but organic hand-made locally-sourced luxury for other homemakers, don’t you know??
But wait! In an attempt to balance this veneer of perfection, you must share your deepest, darkest, juiciest flaws, too!! 😈 Go on. Over-share. We’re waiting…
😏 Nah. You don’t need any of that.
You’re a person, not a brand.
I think 2021 is a good time to humanize people online again. Your husband didn’t marry a brand. Your kids don’t look up to a brand. Your friends don’t love a brand.
They love YOU.
And that’s beautiful!
So, relax 😌
You’re a homemaker, not a brand.
안녕! Bye! Ciao!
