Dear mothers, we’re here to discuss that nagging feeling in the pit of your stomach. Or maybe it’s a little voice in the back of your mind telling you that you are not enough. This, dear Mamas, is Mom Guilt.
First and foremost, it’s totally normal to feel this way. So don’t be so down and out about yourself. Being a mom is a tough life, and the world puts immense pressure on us to maintain that picture-perfect image of motherhood. As a result, those feelings of inadequacy, guilt, and judgment can creep in; you might find yourself becoming increasingly critical that you’re not doing enough – or even being enough – for your children.
Let’s take a moment to appreciate all that you do for your kids, and the loved ones in your life. Let go of the idea of perfection, and embrace your own journey of motherhood.
