How do you not feel guilty?

I really need help w/ this. I've always felt like everyone elses needs were above my own. When i was little I'd always make my parents buy things for my brother and sister before me. Then when I got older I'd spend my money on them, or my niece. Now that I have children it's a lot worse. My children are 1 and 2 and have more then they need right now. They have enough clothes that I wouldn't have to do there laundry for almost 2 months. I on the other hand have 2 pairs of pants, 1 jean and 1 lounging pants) and 2 tops (both maternity). I really need some new clothes I've went out and bought some new clothes not that long ago but after I get home I feel so bad b/c my Dh just lost his job and hasn't been able to find another. Usually the next day i go back and return them. How do I stop feeling so bad and get actually be able to go out and buy a new outfit?

You deserve it mommy. You give, give, give to everyone else...Once in a while it doesnt hurt to splurge on yourself.

And even with DHs not working. If you couldnt have spared the extra money for the outfits you would not have bought it. 

Tha Name is Melissa. I am the mother of 3 lovely children, 2 boys and 1 girl.  My favorite color is red. I love photography and photo manipulation. I am a member of several photo editing groups. I am not a girly girl, Most people say I am just plain Jane..but I like it that way. I am in a bi-racial relationship, and I believe that Love is not a color.

I never feel guilty! I work and make sure all three of my kids have what they need,and as a mom...I deserve to take care of myself! I have clothes,get my nails done,buy my MaryKay makeup....It would be different if my kids had nothing....but they do,they have what they need.So do your kids.Take care of yourself!Just because we are moms,doesnt mean we have to feel guilty over anything! We are taking care of our families and everyone else....that is silly to feel guilty!Go get some things for yourself!leave the kids with hubby!celebrity
