Our expert says:
Surely now it's YOUR turn to go to the Ball ? Yes, you may be responding to some degree of guilt feelings, but we can't guess the origins of such guilt without the deep details and exploration only possible within direct, person-to-person counselling. You don't seem to recognize that you deserve care and attention, and good things like new clothes, as much as anyone else. And the kids would surely enjoy seing their mom happilly wearing something nice and new, too ? Consider counselling, and meanwhile --- why NOT take someone with you when shopping, like that friend or your sister, telling them your problem and asking them to help you discipline yourself and buy some nice things for yourself, and stop buying for the kids, who surely have enough by now ? Spoiling them with excess isn't doing them any real good.
