LOL, I would so do that if I had a religion. So no, my guilt is deep seated and most likely from my mother. Don't tell her that, she still thinks 'she did the best she could with what she had'.
I find silly enough, that just allowing myself to feel guilty for a limited amount of time, "Okay pity party for one hour, watch a sad movie, then move on!" Works well most of the time! When that doesn't work, then I tell my partners and they assure me that I am or am not doing well balancing tings. Hey if not, then there's an actual action I can take to make it better!
