I feel guilty having to work as much as I do. I feel torn to leave my kids going to work.

I feel guilty having to work as much as I do. I feel torn to leave my kids going to work.

I still remember the days I was pregnant with my kids. The excitement and expectations along the journey. But I have always also had that anxiety in the back of my mind as to what it would feel like when I had to get back to work after maternity leave. There were a lot to learn and manage when a newborn, but the guilt feeling of leaving my kids for work was with me all the time. It felt real and painful.
