Lots of stupid advice about "centering yourself" even just for a "few moments". Actually moms just need HELP. From the other half of the parental unit, AKA men. That's it. Just fucking share the childcare and chores already!!

I mean decent outside childcare that is actually affordable would also help. Reasonable leave and unemployment laws would also have been friggin great. But mainly: dads need to be pitching in as much as moms.

I absolutely despise this kind of mamby pamby crap that we spoon-feed to women. Women are the majority of Today's viewers. NAME THE ACTUAL PROBLEM.

Funnily I was doing yoga and it felt like one more chore. So I stopped.

Haha my practice is definitely not consistent due to workload, but it helps me manage my PTSD and anger so it's something I find necessary (for myself) in order to be a decent parent.
