Guilt...that oh-so-common emotion that is a daily burden for the majority of women.
Does any of this sound familiar?
“I hate that I have to finish up this project for work on the weekend! I’m not spending enough time with my family!”
“I shouldn’t have spent that much money on myself.”
“I feel bad that I slept in this morning instead of getting up and cleaning the house.”
“I should’ve checked in again on Aunt Martha (even though I’ve already called her three times already!).”
“I shouldn’t have had dessert last night. Now I’ll have to skip lunch today, or work out longer at the gym if I can actually make it to the gym tonight!”
“I never do enough for my family.”
Feeling guilty is at an all-time high for midlife women (women over 40). Unfortunately, all this guilt is preventing us from taking much-needed time for ourselves to recharge, address our needs, explore our curiosities, and alter our course as we see fit.
