- You have it all
- Don’t spin all the plates
- Reclaim your identity
You have it all
Your house is nice, it’s a good neighborhood. The kids are healthy and smart and excelling in school. Your husband has a good job, he puts food on the table. Maybe a dog, maybe a cat. Life seems perfect. “Why are you complaining?” Your “job” is easy right? To make sure it runs smoothly whether you work outside of the home or not. You have to get the kids too and from school, you should be cleaning the house and making dinner, drive to doctors appointments, dentist appointments, play dates, soccer, lunches, laundry, dishes. Does the dizziness ever stop?
“We expect women to work like they don’t have children and raise children as if they don’t work”
Don’t spin all the plates
Divide and Conquer
Stop putting on the show. You aren’t perfect, nobody is. Ask for help. You can’t spin all the plates because before long they come crashing down. And when that happens everyone suffers and you’ll feel like you failed. Your husband can and should want to help. Keep your own physical and mental health in check because that is your foundation to happiness.
Reclaim your identity
Let those plates shatter. Let them learn to do things for themselves and if things don’t get done there are consequences. Allow yourself to say no. By saying no you’ll see from who the conditional versus unconditional love comes from. You’ll stop balancing that plate even if its a small its equally important. Remember the person you were before your life was in control of you. And don’t be afraid of change. You’ll be so much happier as well as less stressed. When you are happy it radiates and that happiness trickles down to the ones you love most.
