Why is taking care of myself considered being selfish?
So I have a wonderful boyfriend of whom I have a beautiful daughter with. I work full time and take care of business at home. I decided after utter chaos at work that I needed a mental/mommy alone time day. My coworker said I shouldn’t use my vacation time for selfish needs and should use that time to bond with my child. In her eyes I’m an awful mother because I choose to work. She stopped working when she had her boys. She’s about to retire so totally a generational thought process. But she’s making me feel awful for making sure I’m mentally healthy for not only my family but for my department. Am I being selfish??
