I talk to busy people and parents all the time that struggle deeply with creating balance in their lives.
They struggle desperately with guilt.
Guilt of never doing enough.
Guilt of not enough time with kids or their spouse.
Guilt of not having a clean enough house.
Guilt of not being fit and healthy.
Guilt of not being enough.
Can you relate?
So much of the guilt often stems from doing what it takes to take care of yourself.
We “should” ourselves so much that we have intense levels of shame.
But the least selfish and most giving thing you can ever do is prioritize taking care of you.
Because taking care of yourself does not mean you’re neglecting anyone else. And, if you don’t take care of yourself first, how are you going to take care of others?
Have you experienced this struggle? Have you overcome it or does it still linger anytime you think of taking time to care for yourself?
Would love for you to comment and let me know!
P.S. If you KNOW the time for you to let go of guilt and take care of yourself has come, comment below and let’s create a plan for YOU!
