How Community Helped Me Navigate Motherhood

Motherhood is a journey of challenges, from ensuring your child is healthy and happy to balancing work and family life. It’s no wonder many moms feel pressured to be perfect and do it all. As a solo parent and working mom, I know firsthand how overwhelming this can be.

But the truth is, being a perfect mom is impossible. Every mother has her strengths and weaknesses. I struggle with household chores and managing my time, but I’ve learned that it’s okay to ask for help—in fact, it’s essential.

One of my best sources of support has been the more experienced women in my community. These women have been through it all and have a wealth of knowledge and experience I can tap into. Whether it’s advice on shopping or tips for managing a busy schedule, they always have something helpful to share.

One of the ways I’ve connected with these women is through online communities. So many groups on Facebook and other social media platforms (like Madiskarte Moms!) are dedicated to supporting moms. These groups provide a safe space where I can ask questions, share my struggles, and get advice from other moms who have been there.

But I’ve also found that the support I need is closer than I think. My mother, siblings, aunt (mama2) and grandmother have been invaluable sources of wisdom and love. They’re there when I’m not feeling my best or to boost my confidence.

It’s important to recognise the power of peer support this Mother’s Day. We don’t have to do it all alone. By tapping into the wisdom and experience of other moms, we can be better mothers ourselves.

So, to all the moms out there: don’t be afraid to ask for help, and don’t forget to lean on the women in your life who have been there before. Just like how PLDT home is as reliable for people, especially moms, to connect, support, and empower.
