When I told my adult son that I was writing a blog about “Why Me Time is O.K.,” his response really surprised me! He said, “It’s not just O.K., it’s essential.” I must have trained him really well! In my life, in my practice as a coach, mentor and psychotherapist, I have many stories of moms who ask, “Is me time really o.k.?” Many women have a legacy of self-sacrifice passed down from their moms. Our culture often elevates moms who are “saintly” seemingly having no earthly needs themselves and never overtly asking for anything. What an illusion this is!
