Still not Guilt freeMy friend Lucy blogged about her dance of intimacy with guilt and her mom. As a woman I can’t tell you how I could relate. Seems like there is so much guilt around getting things done and being everything to everyone. I have heard several young woman call their moms selfish or weird when they hit menopause. It struck a chord with me. How long must a woman go on serving the world and her children? All the driving, extra curricular activities, holiday preparation, cooking, cleaning, cuddling, and coddling, being present, a woman does, when she finally scales back because she has menopausal sleep lapses, or malaise or just plain wants her life back, she gets criticized and she feels guilt for it!! If a woman leaves a party early, doesn’t attend every requested family event, or opts out of volunteering to host a large celebration she shouldn‘t have to feel hoards of guilt.Eventually it's time to pass the torch!!! If she chooses to travel, explore quilting, art, music, golfing or whatever else has been left on the back burner for years, she should be supported, guilt free in her choices! Really, when does the guilt end??? Thankfully I have support for my creative endeavors, however many aren't!! Tell me what you guilt you feel pressured by??
