Stay at home moms

“Mommy burnout” is something that may be joked about or taken lightly, but the truth of the matter is, there are many burdens that come with being a stay at home mom.

Identity issues/New role. For a woman who has newly left a career to become a stay at home mom, there is a huge transition to deal with. She may feel like her purpose has changed, her responsibilities have changed, and talking through this in therapy can ease the transition and understand her new role without losing herself.

Resentment/Relationship complications. Due to the potential change in roles within the relationship, there may be resentment or complications in relationships. A stay at home mom may feel underappreciated for all that she does on a daily basis, or she may feel guilt about not providing for her family financially. Without addressing these issues, they could lead to a buildup of emotions.

Depression. Unfortunately, due to some of the aforementioned feelings that may come along with becoming a stay at home mom, a depression may result. A monotonous routine or lack of social interaction can enhance this feeling. This is not uncommon, and a psychotherapist can help her beat the depression and recognize the meaning in her life.
