When does doing things for yourself become selfish? This is a fine line for me right now, one that I’m struggling with this week. I am still involved in my children’s lives, driving them around, teaching them, going to feisianna and horse shows and volunteer time, etc….
I’ve been told that if I make myself happy then everyone around me is happy too – but then what is too much? When is too much? I go to yoga and I’ve arranged their classes around times I can go, because – let me tell ya – after a more than a week of NOT going the girls could certainly tell and were telling me to go! – but going creates less time for schoolwork at home. Is this then selfish for me to still go? Is it selfish of me to carve out that me time, that solitary time away from the 24 hour mom job?
