I feel like I am always needed: kids, elderly mom, work, housecare, etc. I am getting better at setting boundaries but I AM TIRED. If I do take the time for self-care, the responsibilities pile up. The other option I've taken is to wake up really early just to find time for myself which is nice but then I am exhausted and over-caffeinated. How do you navigate this difficult time in an already demanding season of life? I feel that self-care is either a drop in the bucket, a myth, or a luxury for those who can afford help.
