How are you feeling at the end of the day? Are you feeling drained from giving energy and love to your children and attempting to fill everyone’s needs?
How many times do you get to the end of the day feeling a slight hint of resentment because no one is prioritizing your needs?
Your needs are currently on the back burner… Whose problem is it?
… I know you won’t want to admit it’s your problem, right?
It’s definitely someone else’s because you’ve spent all day taking care of everyone else that someone needs to take care of you.
Thinking like that my friend, will leave your needs on the back burner and will likely flow over into other areas of your life, including your marriage.
Here’s some tough love, emphasis on the love.
Stop neglecting your needs.
Take some time each day to take care of you and the things you want.
You know your needs better than anyone! You’re the best person to take care of you.
Use nap times to do the things you’ve been putting off.
If your children no longer nap, start implementing “quiet time” daily to fill up your hypothetical cup.
What things can be done later? What things can you delegate?
There is plenty of time in a day for you to take care of the needs of your family and also take care of you.
If you’re feeling exhausted and think taking time for yourself will just add to that exhaustion then that’s exactly what will happen.
However, if you think about doing something for yourself as energizing and rejuvenating then that’s exactly what it will be!
Stop wasting time resenting your husband and your children for taking up all of your energy and start prioritizing yourself.
Self care is everything but selfish.
If you take care of your needs you’ll be more equipped to take care of others.
You are the best person to take care of you, my friend.
Don’t let your needs sit on the back burner anymore.
When you take some time for yourself you’ll gain an increased confidence and love for yourself and those around you.
If you need help with any of this I’m just a click away.
