Mother guilt, Mama guilt, Mummy Guilt, Mom guilt… we’re yet to meet a mother who hasn’t experienced a good old dose of the guilts. Guilt may be a normal part of the human emotional experience, but that doesn’t mean you need to feel burdened by it. We think mums do guilt better than anyone, so it’s time to talk about getting a grip on your guilt…
Guilt is an area that mothers tend to over-achieve in. And it doesn’t matter if you are currently at home with your children, if you’ve returned to paid work, or if your children are little or big. Feeling guilty is something that just about all mothers experience. Guilt can definitely be a barrier to thriving as a mother, and too much guilt can negatively impact your wellbeing… but a life without guilt isn’t necessarily something that we recommend either. As we discuss in Thrive Time Episode 5, the emotion of guilt has a purpose, and it’s knowing how to manage and respond to guilt that can make all the difference.
Based on our research into the science of guilt, we’ve developed several strategies that help guilt-ridden mums to get a grip on the guilt they are experiencing. In our episode below, we share 3 important steps you can take to reduce the negative impact that guilt is having on you.
