Do You Struggle With Guilt Mama?

I feel guilty when I ask my partner to have a turn trying to settle our teething son.  
I feel guilty when my son hurts himself. 
I feel guilty when I leave my son’s nappy on for longer than I should.  
I feel guilty for wanting time to myself. 
I feel guilty for not knowing what my son wants or needs sometimes.  
I feel guilty when I work on my business from home. 
I feel guilty when I work on my business away from home. 
I feel guilty when I am away from my son, for any reason. 
So. Much. Guilt.  
I can’t stop it!  
Mum guilt is INTENSE. 
That connection with my child is SO POWERFUL. 

I’ve accepted the fact that I will feel guilty about all the things – big or small.  

So, instead of trying to never feel guilty, which I feel is a losing battle, I choose to be aware, I choose to recognise those familiar feelings of guilt, when they arise.   

When I become aware of those feelings, I can put them into perspective, I can be kind to myself.  

I can remind myself that time to myself is IMPERATIVE for my mental health, and for me to be able to show up as the best version of me that I can, for me, and for my son.
