I’m often told that I over extend myself…put too much on my plate. But do I have a choice?
I am struggling lately with achieving balance in my life. Between two beautiful special needs children, a husband, job, running a household…and, not to mention trying to find anytime for myself…I can’t seem to maintain a healthy balance in my life. I feel pulled in 15 different directions and never feel as though I am truly fulfilling anyone’s needs, myself included. Not only does this cause feelings of being inadequate as a mother and wife…I feel as though I am failing myself. There’s nothing I wouldn’t do for my family…but I want to make sure that in this process I’m not losing myself as well.
How are other mothers in my situation able to reach and maintain a level of balance in their lives. What do we have to give up, or settle on?
The mental struggle is a lot right now. Would appreciate any thoughts or ideas.
