It tends to creep up on you, the Mother Guilt. It is a sneaky, relentless thing .. much like the anxiety. It doesn’t matter how smart, prepared or resilient you are either. I find that Mother Guilt is a constant voice that needs to be managed or it can really chip away at your belief in yourself.
Mother Guilt is usually irrational, coming from a place of fear rather than love. It takes a lot of constant reflection and meditation on this, as well as self love to put it back in its place. Does it have a place though, or is it simply useless? This is something I have been thinking about a lot lately.
