The lingering feeling of motherhood is guilt. Love certainly does too, but even the feelings of love can be clouded with guilt

It’s 10pm and I’m going through my usual bedtime routine. Not skincare or meditation or any of the other prescribed methods of self-care we should employ to ward off the nihilism that threatens to engulf us at any moment. No, I do my nightly Google, researching all the ways I can or can’t screw my kids for life.

Type “feel bad for…” in the little box and the ever-intuitive Google will fill in the rest with unnervingly accurate suggestions. “I feel bad for yelling at my five-year-old”; “I feel guilty for crying in front of my toddler”; “I feel bad for not reading to my baby.” Feeling bad, feeling bad, feeling bad. Yes, bedtime is hectic for me. I have a theory that the Google search bar is our 30’s mood ring. A cursory scan of my search history reveals a depressing glimpse into my prevailing state of mind.
