Release the Mummy Guilt
When going back to work, well starting my first business Mansell Taylor Consulting I struggled with Mummy Guilt. My daughter was 4 months old when I set up the business and I had not thought about how much energy and time is was going to take, especially being in a client facing role. Every time I left her to go to meetings, which could take anywhere from 2- 4 hours it was heart-breaking. I would second guess myself all the time.
These were my exact thoughts:
“ should I really be doing this? I am meant to be a mom, does that mean I should be with her all day”
“what if she needs me and I am not there”
“what happens if something happens to her, not being in my care”
“ is it best to work while she is little and then take time off when she is at school”
I am not sure if you have had any of these thoughts, but it is hard, well I found it hard. Now 3.5 years later and child number 2, its easier and I am certain about the choices I make.
For this reason I thought it would be great to have an expert in MUMMY GUILT on the Power Session Show:
