Have you noticed that balance (well, lack of it) and guilt seem to go hand-in-hand for moms?
It seems that when we’re not in balance, maybe because we’re spending too much time working, and then the house is a mess because of it, not only are things feeling off, but we’re also feeling bad about it.
What’s that about?
As if it’s not enough that time- and energy-wise we’re not spending that time and energy where we’d like, but then we start to feel bad about it. When you’re unbalanced, do you have thoughts like these?
- I can’t believe I let the house get so messy…
- The kids are acting out because of me…
- Things are so chaotic- why can’t I keep up?
