#NOMORE Feeling Overwhelmed??! (Connie J)

In this day and age, I think feeling overwhelmed is a way of life for a lot of people. Imagine taking that normal, every day overwhelmed and multiplying it by being involved in a Domestic Violence situation??!

I find myself feeling overwhelmed fairly easily, sometimes. Not to make excuses, but I believe some of it comes from growing up in a covert Domestic Violence situation. You have a tendency to walk on eggshells; which makes you hyper-sensitive to the smallest disruption, causing you to freeze like a deer in the headlight, so you cause no further disruption.

This really wears you out, after awhile. I have made progress in taking care of myself; but unforeseen circumstances seem to always come up, and all you can do is keep pushing until you can stop and reboot. That, is life. All we can do is the best we can.

Remember, as we've discussed before, if you do NOT take care of yourself, how can you hope to help someone else? Sometimes, even random reboots can help; so take them when you can. You ARE worth the time!!!

Have a good day, and be safe... #NOMORE #KNOWMORE
