Postscript to my last post
Last week, I wrote a blog post on how having a family changed my views on what success really means to me. I received a lot of feedback and helpful suggestions on the post, everything from reframing to conditioning ones mind to stay present through meditation. It was so great to hear your stories. However, a reader pointed out something that is worth calling out. And that is, I had the choice to not always be physically present since I had the luxury of childcare and a spouse as back up. This is true.
I spoke from a place of privilege. Many parents don’t have my options. They have to make tough decisions and live with the lingering guilt that lives on the other side of those decisions.
It’s worth acknowledging and appreciating. Thank you!
