Stop Feeling Guilty

“For every woman, guilt is her middle name. I don’t think women who spend their time with children should be made to feel guilty for not using their brains and I don’t think women who work full-time should be made to feel guilty about not spending enough time with their children.

Madeline Albright

I think many mums do feel guilty despite having their children’s best interests very much at heart.

In my time as a Mum, I have worked part-time, full-time and stayed at home. I have felt bad about each of these choices so I think you can’t really win. In the end it is about being true to yourself and doing your best. If you can look in the mirror and know that you love your children and are trying to make their lives good, give yourself a pat on the back and lay off the self-sabotaging guilt trip.

Please don’t judge other mums either. You will rarely know their full story.
