Do you ever feel pressured to do it all. Like you have to be “superwoman” with little or no help?

 

Far to often, we feel we must be there for everyone else, both at work and at home, while never having learned how to say no and set boundaries.

 

We learned that selflessness is a virtue and self-love is selfish.

 

And yet no one talks about the silent suffering that plagues so many of us: the exhaustion, anxiety, stress, resentment, and the related guilt and shame that comes from feeling inadequate to handle it all.

 

Somewhere along our journeys, we learned to over-give and under-receive.

 

When we aren’t used to receiving; asking for (or accepting) help can seem like weakness. 

 

I can assure you, it’s definitely not a weakness to receive help.

 

In fact, it’s healthy to allow ourselves to receive help from others, and to share the responsibilities and burdens of life with our our families, our partners and our communities.

 

It’s OK to ask for help at work when we’ve taken too much on our plates.

It’s a beautiful thing to allow ourselves to receive a compliment without feeling like we have to deflect or minimize it.

 

And allowing ourselves to receive is an act of love (for us and others) because it also allows others the chance to give.

 

So why not give this whole receiving thing a try?

 

With so much love,

Jenna
