Chaos with Family/Home
Things can get out of control with family members and the home, but knowing how to handle it, maybe supervision or discipline is in order, I know you can!
You are doing the best you can as a mum, but some days seem harder than others.
Lack of order at home and chaos with family could be from a variety of things:
-cleaning up after everyone all day and night
-picking up after everyone
-cooking meals when needed (at different times)
-too much arguing, always fighting
-family members don’t get along with one another
-family fighting because of the type of food they eat
-children find it difficult to manage their own time
-problems with aging parents who need caregiving
-taking care of themselves while also caring for their parent(s)?)
Chaos with family can be tough to deal with and hard to cope with, no matter your problems.
If you can, reach out for some support from your family, friends or community.
Chaos in Marriage/Relationships
Chaos in a marriage can be a difficult thing to talk about. We often assume that our spouse is going through the same things we are when in reality, they’re not.
It can be easy for us to see only what we want, rather than getting an accurate view of our partner’s thoughts and feelings.
You may experience emotional turmoil because someone close to you has changed, feelings have been hurt, or even worse, they’ve cheated on us!
You might not know how to fix the marriage, or you’re scared of what will happen if you do
When there are problems in a marriage, it can be hard for people to communicate their feelings and get them out into the open.
Chaos with Friends
Close friends are supportive but can be distressing when you have problems and chaos.
You feel like they’re not really your friend anymore.
A disagreement or an argument has left one person feeling hurt, abandoned and unwilling to reconnect with the other party.
An agreement where both people will start hanging out less often or no longer share common interests.
Either you or they have a stronger or bossy personality.
Manipulation whenever is needed.
Mistrust or Jealousy.
Chaos at Work
Chaos in the workplace is very difficult to deal with as it’s where you need to go every day and maybe for long lengths of time. Remember, the day will end, and that’s when you can relax. It would be awesome if your work environment were pleasant and enjoyable.
Heavy demands on your physical labour and strength from working long hours at work or outside jobs
Other people are not fulfilling their duties, so you have to complete them.
Very demanding, need to stay back, do extra time, etc.
Your boss never gives you praise.
You are the go-to person but barely getting a thank-you.
I am saying only a few as I can keep going, but I’m sure you get it.
