After a weird weekend with lots of family drama and emotional exhaustion, it's somehow Wednesday already and this week is nearly over.
The family drama is being addressed (and my siblings and I are going to get together with the parents to have a...meeting? intervention? kumba-ya circle?). But after discussing all of it with my therapist yesterday and exchanging a lot of really awesome emails with my brother and sister, I was WIPED THE F*CK OUT. I went to bed at 8:00 last night. No lyin'.
One thing I need to remember while going through all of this -- take time for ME. Walking/running/napping/medita
ting/cooking -- whatever it is, I need time to just sit with myself and decompress. And, y'know, that's probably good advice for, like, ALL THE TIME. I just forget to do that. I feel like I absorb everyone's emotions -- when I interact with anyone, I empathize and feel with and for them. That gets tiring.
So there's my goal for today and for the upcoming weeks. And I'd like to make sure that I post updates here more frequently. I need to stay connected here because it's good for me and MAKES me feel good.
Thank you for supporting me, Sparkfriends!
