Has it ever felt like we’re climbing over obstacles to be first on our “to-do” list? What might we want instead?
When we’re so busy tending to everyone at work and home it may feel like we consistently get pushed to the bottom of the list. Over a long period, this can become so routine we may not consider any possibility that “ME” time can be an option.
What might be some deterrents that can make self-responsibility feel like a mountain we may not be able to climb?
If we remove these impediments and choose some “ME” time first, what might that do for us?
During these uncertain times, it can appear even easier to fall to the bottom of our “to-do” list. SELF-care and SELF-responsibility are even more imperative now.
The word ‘SELF’ can also be labeled using other words like personality, character, person, and identity.
Might we consider concealing or ignoring our personality, our character, or the person we are? Why might this feel important?
If self-responsibility and self-care don’t feel like a priority, we may not realize we could be hiding our desired identity.
Human giver syndrome, not commonly recognized, is the belief we must give up everything using every drop of energy to be there for others. It may feel as if others can’t see all the struggle and exhaustion that can be incurred with this belief.
Continued frustration and fatigue can cause physical concerns that can simply evade medical diagnosis which can cause additional quandaries. The truth is it can sometimes feel like it sucks the life out of us when we’re always last on the list.
Though we’re still following protocols and physical distancing, what self-care might we want to implement that we may not have been doing before?
What additional things can we start doing for ourselves and others?
How can we increase our interactions with others to improve upon how we may have connected with them before? How might this feel like self-care? Who else might benefit from this?
There can be opportunities available to us we weren’t aware of that we could benefit from when we prioritize ourselves.
If we could discover something we didn’t know we didn’t know about ourselves that’s been hiding deep inside us, how might this feel different?
How might it feel if we start rising our way to the top of our “to-do” list without climbing over obstacles so everything else will fall into place?
