I have always been a worrier and a second-guesser, but lately I find myself struggling with guilt over even tiny, random decisions. For example, I let my 21-month-old daughter have half a cookie AND a popsicle for dessert, just because the way she asked was really cute. Of course, this isn't THAT big of a deal, right? Dessert is definitely a treat at our house, and I don't usually let her have two at a time, or even in one day. So why am I still worried about it? It just doesn't seem rational. I find this happening a lot lately, and I've read that guilt over small things, as well as an inability to feel confident making decisions, is often a result of experiencing a stillbirth. Does anyone else have trouble with this? Any advice? Thanks for your time. Love you all.
