I spend my days at work dreaming about my family. But if this longing exists, why when given the opportunity to spend time with them, do I sometimes turn them away? Why will I chase my daughter around the house for ten minutes, but then tell her I’m too tired to continue? Why the need to play online Spades for a bit on the weekends instead of spending every minute entertaining my children? Why the need for time to myself, if I love my family so much more than I love myself? Why do I feel guilty, and should I?
