If you are a mom, you have likely experienced “mom guilt” at one point or another. As a working mother, I have had my fair share. The more I speak with other mothers, the more I realize that it is an almost universal feeling. It is rarely rational and logical, but that feeling remains, all the same. We can explain it away in our heads, but our hearts don’t listen. For what it’s worth, I think it has to do with the basic human instinct that we have control over everything in our lives, even when we know that we don’t.
