How many times have you started to do something and realized that there was too much on your plate already?
I am not sure if it’s pride, the “super-woman” syndrome, or thinking that we can do everything and take care of everyone. But the realization is that we deplete ourselves and then there is nothing that we can do for anyone, including ourselves.
We must come to the realization that others are willing to help. We only need to reach out and ask. You will feel better and you will give others the satisfaction of being able to help you out.
Take the time to go over your “to do list.” Break it down in three sections:
And embrace the reality of what you can’t, or, shouldn’t do, and let it go.
Now you can actually accomplish what matters. You will feel more relaxed, will enjoy the time that you spend with your loved ones without worrying about what you have to do, and actually end up having time for yourself.
Face it, you are not expected to do it all, and if someone says they expect you to, they don’t care about your sanity!
Now go and do something that you want to do!
