This blog will be a personal one.
As many of you know, my mother passed away at the end of August. But it doesn’t begin or end there. I have been taking care of my mother in various ways for many years. The last 2 weeks of her life I was with her whenever I wasn’t helping my clients.
It does bring me much happiness in helping others. That is just my personality and who I am. Your successes are my successes or as someone told me: ” I get pleasure out of your accomplishments.” This is what keeps me going and helps me through difficult times- knowing I can make someone else’s life easier and hopefully more fulfilled.
I totally understand how difficult it is to ask for help. We think it’s a sign of weakness and a loss of independence. I struggle with that too.
I feel I can or should do it all myself and why put my burdens on someone else.
I could not have done everything that needed and needs to be done without the support I had. Saying that, I probably should have 1. both accepted more help and 2. slowed down or not felt that I had to do it all.
Well someone did knock me on the head and that was my body. I pushed it too hard into exhaustion and lowered my immune system so I became ill. Now my body said what are you going to do about it. I partially listened. I kept going the 1st day slowed a bit the 2nd and finally decided to give it a rest on the 3rd.
I needed to practice what I preach: 1. if you don’t take care of yourself first then how are you going to care for others 2. ask for help when needed – this is not a sign of weakness but a way of improving your quality of life.
