I’m torn… between wanting to spend time with my family and needing time by myself. I am torn between playing pretend school (or tea party or grocery store) for hours and admitting that it’s just not my thing. I am torn between my roles as mother and wife and self.
Self-care is a tough thing for me, and I have noticed that I’m not very good at it. And since I’m the type of person who likes to be at least average at most things, I am trying to treat myself gently. Taking a nap would be ok. Putting the computer down and answering the e-mails tomorrow would be ok. Enjoying my daily life is completely ok.
