I have such a hard time allowing myself to take breaks. I have two young children and I feel like I need to always be “on” for them, even though I have a supportive partner who is very involved and helpful. But still, I’m the mom, right? I feel like despite all I do it’s never enough.
I’m part of a community that is hosting a free event on the issue of mom guilt, facilitated by a midwife and social worker. I'm really looking forward to this event and wanted to share: https://www.sevenstarling.com/events/navigating-feelings-of-guilt
Does anyone else have recommendations for easing guilt around parenting? Any good resources, articles, books, or podcast episodes? What has helped you find balance between work, parenting, maintaining a healthy relationship with your partner, and self-care?
