I Am Exhausted
How I Went from Doing It All to Having It All
Marissa, Laura Doyle Certified Coach
In my house, I did it all.
If a diaper needed to be changed, I changed it. If a last-minute doctor visit was needed, I rearranged my schedule. If the house was dirty, I cleaned it.
I was exhausted from handling the majority of the childcare and household responsibilities.
I was also suffering from postpartum depression following the birth of my daughter. I’m certain that continuing to do so many things I really didn’t want to be doing contributed to my depression.
With depression, exhaustion and just plain misery oozing out of me, my husband became the enemy in my eyes.
It was ugly. He did very little to help and when he did, he did it wrong. I was so angry about having to do everything to keep up the house and care for our daughter.
I was clearly married to a misogynist and knew it was his mother’s fault for babying him and doing everything for him.Here’s how I got my husband to step up and be the man I wanted so I could finally kick my feet up. Click To Tweet
Hi! I’m Laura.
I was the perfect wife–until I actually got married. When I tried to tell my husband how to be more romantic, more ambitious, and tidier, he avoided me. I dragged him to marriage counseling and nearly divorced him. I then started talking to women who had what I wanted in their marriages and that’s when I got my miracle. The man who wooed me returned.
I wrote a few books about what I learned and accidentally started a worldwide movement of women who practice The Six Intimacy Skills™ that lead to having amazing, vibrant relationships. The thing I’m most proud of is my playful, passionate relationship with my hilarious husband John–who has been dressing himself since before I was born.
