The struggles of mothering in the social media era are real.
With social media comparison being a downer, Christian singer Selah created a parody for Mother’s Day to Little Big Town’s “Girl Crush.” The parody, “Mom Crush,” tells the whoas of modern-day mommas comparing themselves to the Pinterest-perfect families they see on social media.
“As a mom, I am constantly looking at social media and feeling inadequate when I compare myself to other moms,” Selah wrote on her Facebook post. “It’s totally wrong, and I totally do it all the time. I was allowing other mom’s successes to make me feel like a failure; not by anything they did to me, but because of my own insecurities. We all want to be perfect and we’re all doing the best we can, and I hope this video shows a little of that. We are all in this together. And we need each other, because momming is HARD!”
Some of the comedic — and maybe too relatable — lyrics include:
The way that she cleans her house,
The way that she’s always clean,
Lord knows I’ve tried,
To bathe at least once a week.
No matter what your Instagram feed or Pinterest page looks like, happy Mother’s Day from UtahValley360!
