I read a news article this morning that reported on a survey showing working moms and stay at home moms BOTH feel overwhelmed. This got me to thinking about the guilt issue. While we can understand some of the guilt that working moms carry around with them, is there really more guilt because a mom works outside the home or is it just a different type of guilt?
Personally, I think all moms carry some level of guilt with them no matter which choice they make – to stay home or work. As women, I think many of us put pressure on ourselves to be the best, do all and never let anyone down. So I wonder…what causes us to feel like we are supposed to be “superwoman” when, in reality, it is impossible to be something other than human. Thoughts on this? I would love to hear them!
