Are you someone who is very good at looking after everyone else to the almost exclusion of yourself?
It’s true you do such a great job of being there for everyone and taking care of their needs because ……. …….. (fill in for yourself).
However, the truth is your “good girl” (you’re usually a woman), is going to rob you of your own life. So many people, take on the role of caretaker. What they don’t realise, is the high personal price they pay for taking on this role.
How do you value yourself? Not a nice question to have to answer but worth it.
How do you feel about not having time for yourself?
Does the idea of really looking after your own needs sound selfish, arrogant and uncaring? If so … why?
How would it be to not take on any commitments which are done out of resentment or obligation?
If life is running away from you in this way, it will continue to gain speed unless you put on the brakes.
Do you ever think, “I would love to have time to take more exercise, eat well and lose weight”. Then think, “but I have to look after everyone else”. So who is looking after you while you are looking after everyone else? Who says you are less important?
A new life starts with acknowledging all is not well, decide on a plan of action and get help if needed. Asking for help is not a sign of weakness but an act of kindness in allowing someone else to shine. Why wait for your world to come crashing down around you before you take action?
Imagine feeling completely motivated to look after yourself and lose weight.
Imagine feeling in control when you look at the in-tray, fridge or arrive home.
Imagine sleeping peacefully all night and waking refreshed full of energy and feel healthy.
Imagine taking time for yourself, then looking and feeling how you want to feel.
If it was your best friend do you think they deserve all this?
Why would you not want the same for yourself?
