Working Mom’s Guilt

Sure I am not alone in this sentiment. Working mom’s guilt is practically epidemic. Whenever I feel guilty, I just lay down my reasons once more and convince myself, well, they are all valid.

  • I love my job. Despite the ups and downs, disagreement with the bosses and colleagues at times, I still love my job and I enjoy it! I find more fulfillment in it!
  • I need money. There’s no question about it, I guess! Everyone does. I am just also anticipating the what ifs. What if my husband loses his job? How do we survive? What’s our fall back?
  • I am happy with my nanny. After the long search, I have finally found the one whom I can entrust my girls while I am away. Plus my being fortunate for having my parents around, next street where we live.

So there, now I am motivated again haha!

  1. I’m happy too that you’ve finally found the right person to entrust Deye and Ishi. That’s my dilemma right now, my sister who stayed with me for 6 years decided to go home last month because our mom got sick.

    ang hirap maghanap ng bagong yaya 🙁
