Though what you say is true for most moms, I think women in general, especially the more nurturing ones, are prone to the same behaviors; taking care of the rest of the world and putting themselves last. I’m guilty myself, but every now and again I try to remember to do for me..
Last month I decided to take a mental health weekend. I debated the cost, but finally concluded if I don’t take time I’ll implode. Along with the trip to the Big Easy I decided I needed to tone up a bit. So after five years of injury and illness, I’m back to working out at least once daily (I’m doing it for me not vanity). It gets a lot harder the older you get. Maybe I’ll even make the time to go to the nail salon before I fly out…maybe.
Of course I’ll actively do for myself until someone else is in need, then I’ll put myself aside for them. Call it a personality flaw, but it’s who I am and I have no hope of breaking the cycle, nor do I really think I want to.
