It is time to Resign!

It is time to resign, but not from the job that puts food on the table. It is time to resign from being the CEO (aka caretaker) of your household. If you are primarily responsible for making things happen, including laundry, groceries, and managing all that is involved in running a home, you are eligible for this offer. You have sufficiently met your responsibilities. this position is often held by a person who needs to be needed.  In addition, you may have been programmed to neglect your own needs, and therefore, unconsciously look to fill the needs of others.  You mistakenly believe that the needs of others matter more than your needs.  In truth, you feel unworthy of having needs. It is then automatic to put the needs of others before your own needs. In time though, you will feel resentful that others needs get met, while your needs are still neglected. Who is taking care of your needs? Burdens are responsibilities that belong to others. In other words, you assume the responsibility of others, while neglecting responsibility for yourself.   

Today, I give you permission to surrender your burdens, whether emotional, financial or physical, to others. In the very least, remind others that they are responsible for themselves and their well-being. In doing so, you will have the time and energy to meet your needs. You will feel so much happier!
