I wanted to write about something I call the guilt of motherhood. This guilt is actually a burden that I think most mothers consistently carry with them. It’s an uncertainty and worry that we are not equipped to make significant decisions, or that we won’t be able to handle all that we think is expected of us. This guilt is felt as we are raising our children, in our marriages, friendships and in our family relationships. For the purposes of this blog, I will be focusing on the guilt of motherhood pertaining to our children. As a mother of a toddler and a newborn, I am constantly working through the pressures of decisions I need to make and dealing with guilt about whether or not I made the right decisions.
