Working too Much

Thanks for the article from Isaiah Gaines

I work way too much, particularly for a new mom. I always had envisioned when I had my first child I would spend my maternity leave dreading when I had to go back to work but instead it’s like I never had a maternity leave – I spent just about every day checking in with work on my Atlanta clear internet. My husband was so mad at me by the end of it for never being able to unplug I thought he was going to leave me! I love my daughter and I miss her a lot but I have to say I’m really thankful there’s such a thing as daycare because I don’t know what I’d do if I didn’t have a way to leave her while I went back to work. My whole identity is all wrapped up in my job now and the days when I’m not at the office I just don’t feel like myself anymore. Is that a bad thing to say?
