This weekend I had some rare, uninterrupted down time and found myself scrolling through Netflix to see what I could watch. I found a made-for-Netflix show that was created for my demographic, so I settled in to enjoy it.
I keep hearing people say “new year, new you!” The problem is, I don’t feel new. The year is barely a week old and I feel overwhelmed and overburdened. I feel like I can’t do even one more thing, that the tasks ahead of me are too many. Work. Home. Friends. Family. Laundry. Dinner. Cleaning. I feel pulled in so many directions that I can’t possibly do it all, like I am not enough. I feel like the needs of those around me are too great. I just can’t do it.
