I first heard these ten golden rules  from a guest speaker on one of my seminars and I've since shared them with hundreds of women. I think they have something to say to all of us, especially on the thorny topic of feeling guilty; I hope you find them helpful too!

1)I am not on call to all of the people all of the time.

2)I have needs of my own and they may not be the same as my friends, family, or colleagues.  

3)I don't have to say yes to every request put to me.

4)I don't have to carry on doing something just because I've always done it.  

5)Time I spend relaxing is time well spent.

6)I know there is no such thing as the perfect  girlfriend, wife, mother or child.

7)Time I spend feeling guilty could be spent doing more enjoyable things.

8)I won't do it for others if they are capable of doing it for themselves.

9)I owe myself the same care and consideration I give to others.

10)Remember at all times, especially in the face of criticism, when I'm up against difficulties and anxiety: I'm doing my best!
