“Your wellbeing is directly connected to this boundary: Don’t neglect carving out time to fill up your own bucket.” – Terri Cole
Have you ever experienced “mom guilt”?
Do you try to get it all done and then feel like you’re failing in one area or another (or all of them)?
Does it feel like everything will fall apart if you take five minutes for yourself?
If you are nodding your head, you are not alone. “Mom guilt” is a common experience. But as I’ve seen with many therapy clients, healthy boundaries can help mitigate this experience.
It is time to stop feeling bad about being human (which is really what “mom guilt” is about). In this episode, I give you the top five essential boundaries for empowered motherhood to lessen mom guilt.
- 2:50 Why mom guilt is so common and how self care can be part of the solution
- 4:50 Accept more help from others
- 7:00 Why good mothering is good enough and perfect mothering doesn’t exist
- 9:40 Creating boundaries around work as a mother
- 13:20 Navigate co-parenting to manage emotional labor
- 17:40 Establishing boundaries when family, friends, and neighbors expect things of you
