Aspirational Shame in Motherhood: The Motherhood Tribe Podcast
I recently had the opportunity to discuss aspirational shame in mothers with Katy and Valerie of “The Motherhood Tribe” podcast. Aspirational shame is a topic I’ve written about for many years and refers to the feelings of guilt or unworthiness that some women experience when they have desires or ambitions outside of their home and family life.
Aspirational shame comes from a society that has told women they have to make a choice between a family and a career. By having supportive influences (including a spouse!), honoring your desires, navigating difficult experiences or even forging a new path, you can overcome this sense of shame in order to fully contribute your creative offerings while also maintaining your relationships.
Listen to our discussion above!
