that when we think about putting ourselves and our needs first along with it comes guilt? The guilt of saying no to someone and the guilt of letting someone down.
At the moment, I'm in a situation where I have committed myself for caring for my nephews while my sister is as School, it's getting harder and harder, my youngest nephew is a basket case when you leave the room, and I dont just mean little crying he is screaming, I dont know whether it's due to what's been happening around him lately or not, but in the process of this screaming he is waking my little man up 40 minutes after he went to sleep, and yep he doesn't re-settle, so I now have 2 screaming little ones. :(
How do I say to her, it's just to much? it's getting harder and harder? I'm having enough trouble trying to get H in a routine, not to mention my mental health at the moment. The thing is, she has no-one else to help her out, especially now she is on her own..so enter the guilt..I really don't know what to do about the situation to be honest...
I'm also having an issue with the fact that I dont really have a full day to get any jobs done..I have them until about 2 and then mum picks them up, which doesn't really give me much time to get anything done before I have to pick the kids up from school..
I feel like I'm being selfish right now because I want to put me first and Harrison, and I know the repercussions from my family, the indirect comments which then enters the guilt again..
Anyone with some advice..will be greatly appreciated!
Catch ya soon
