I think I was born feeling guilty...lol! Therapy did help that aspect...and I'm still married after 29 years..so, something is working.
I'm in my most stressful/anxious time of year...Spring...and definitely feeling it. It definitely takes energy to change my perspective and look forward to the stuff I have to/want to do rather than dread it.
I know my limitations....but do tend to stretch/leap. Feels good, but with leapin always comes change..so, I get caught in the cycle of guilt if I don't continue.
I've learned that understanding/finding boundaries and not feeling responsible for everything helps to lessen the guilt. It's not with everything...but those of us who feel it tend to fixate on that.
The big picture perspective and objective options always is good to add to the mix......but dang...that takes so much energy..haha.
Well, back to my happy place....groan!
