GUILT

When my family is at a church event and I choose to stay home I sometimes I have company for these times. GUILT. It likes to creep in and sit by me and whisper things in my ears like, you are a bad wife and a bad mom. You should be supporting your family even if it makes you miserable. They are more important than you and your feelings. 

Do you know GUILT? Not a pleasant fellow. 

Sometimes I believe guilt and feel bad. Sometimes, I let GUILT know that I can be a good mom and take some time off. That I can and am supportive in 100 other ways. I tell GUILT that I can take care of me, and that by taking care of me I will be a happier mom and happier wife.I tell GUILT that  people actually do prefer living with happy people instead of miserable people. 

GUILT will leave at this point. But I know he may come back, but that is ok. I understand that GUILT visits many people, it is just part of the human experience. I do not need to invite him in for long, but I acknowledge that he comes and goes just like any other emotion. 


Do you know GUILT? Life coaching is a great tool to use to recognizes and processing the many emotions that come up in a mixed faith marriage.
