Mom to Mom Mom to Mom

Do you feel guilty when..

Posted by   + Show Post
You buy something for yourself? I bought a shirt today. Just a plain long sleeve shirt. And i felt guilty. I rarely buy things for myself. My kids have more clothes than i do. And thats fine. I always put their needs before my own.

No. As long as I'm not spending money we can't afford to spend, and my daughter has what she needs, I don't feel guilty for doing something for myself. I also don't feel guilty going to the gym, meeting a friend for a drink, or going out on a date with my husband. I think all of those things contribute to making me a happier person, which in turn makes me a better mom.

Never. My life didn't end when I had a baby. I put her needs first, but I don't put mine on hold either.

I used to feel that way all the time.  I still feel that way from time to time, but I'm learning that's its ok to doing something for myself once in awhile.

no, but my kids are 8 and 11 years old and don't go through clothes as quickly as they use to.  so i don't have to put as much money into their clothes.  now unless we have the extra money i feel like i have to justify the need for an item.  if i can't justify the need for something then i don't buy it at that time, i'll wait.

There are times when I feel guilty for buying myself things. Then there are things that I don't feel guilty for buying myself.

Like socks, and things that make me feel more comfortable, I don't feel guilty for. Anything else though and I feel that I am spoiling myself when my son needs and wants things.

What is making you feel guilty? What would cause that?
