I don’t know why this is a consistent issue with busy adults but I know I am totally guilty of this over and over again…...neglecting myself while caring for all the people!
We spend so much time (especially as moms) pouring into the people we love yet we don’t spend time making sure we are in the best position to do that. If one more person tells me I need to put my own oxygen mask on before putting anyone else’s on my head will explode!
It’s not that I don’t believe this is true. It’s that I am busy and so it’s difficult to add more things to my schedule. Sometimes there is so much advice out there with a long list of things to do that I just dismiss it all because it seems too many things to incorporate. Even though there may be a few things I know I should do, I feel like a failure, so I don’t do anything. Please tell me I am not alone.
