Mom Guilt: It's Okay to Not Be Perfect

But let’s be real – what even is a perfect mom?

As a mom, I’m constantly battling with guilt. I feel guilty for not spending enough time with my kids, for not being patient enough, for not being a good enough role model. I feel guilty for working too much, for not being present in the moment, for not being a “perfect” mom.

But let’s be real – what even is a perfect mom? Does such a thing even exist? I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t. We’re all just doing the best we can with what we have, and that’s all we can ask of ourselves. It’s okay to make mistakes, to have off days, to not have it all together all the time. That’s just part of being human.

So, to all the moms out there who are feeling guilty – take a deep breath, give yourself a break, and remember that you’re doing a great job. You’re an amazing mom, and your kids are lucky to have you. Don’t let guilt hold you back from being the best mom you can be – for yourself, and for your kids.
