Ditch the Mama Guilt

Updated: Jun 20, 2022

Women, mamas tend to feel guilt a lot. For not doing this for this person, or doing that for that person, or just for standing in their own Truth, AND not feeling guilty for not feeling guilty. Let’s change that story.

Guilt is the feeling, so the thought behind that feeling is probably - “my role is to look after everyone, keep everyone else at peace + uber comfortable.” However, doing everything for everyone else can also lead to negative feelings + consequences, such as resentment, burnout + loss of self.

To step into your own mamahood power, you have to take care of yourself, too. Ditch the guilt!

Guilt feels icky, instead, I’m betting, you want to feel self-honoring, confident, peaceful, nurturing in an empowering not enabling way - so how about you change the thought or story in your head to - “when I honor myself, stand in my truth + make time for myself, I feel great, + I show + give permission for my loved ones to do the same.”

No, this thought pattern will not become habit overnight. Just keep chipping away at catching yourself in the negative thought + kindly telling your mind that the new thought creates a better outcome for your whole family.

I'd love to hear how it goes + how great it feels to ditch the guilt!
