Guilt can make the strongest of moms crumble under its heavy pressure, and it has a way of creeping in no matter how hard you try to keep it at bay. As moms, we feel guilty over almost everything; yelling at our kids and saying things we don’t mean to say, using formula instead of breastmilk, going back to work too soon (or even going back to work at all).
All of these things make us feel like we’re being a horrible parent, and we can find ourselves feeling unworthy of the blessings that come our way. When we start to feel as if we are less than, or not living up to certain expectations, we start to be overcome with such a huge sense of guilt and remorse, that we no longer enjoy being a mom.
These feelings of guilt and unworthiness can completely rob us of the joys of motherhood. It pushes us to try and achieve some unrealistic image of a supermom, at the expense of our own health, sanity, and happiness. Many times, guilt can also have a paralytic effect, causing us to not do anything out of fear of failure or not being good enough.
Moments of guilt are to be expected; we will always have times where we question if we could have done more or should have acted differently. However, when guilt becomes a constant issue, it starts to slowly eat away at our very core.
Focusing on being more mindful of your strengths and trusting in your intuition can help reduce feelings of guilt. Through a combination of hypnotherapy and meditation, Mamazen will empower you to release the guilt, shift your mindset, and realize that you are the best mom for your children.
